From the south, the Lochaber area begins in Rannoch Moor and Glencoe including Kinlochleven on the West Highland Way, and goes all the way north into the Great Glen, it goes from Fort William all the way to the Atlantic west coast along the Road to the Isles to Mallaig and includes the Small Isles of Eigg, Rhum and Muck; it extends all the way out to the most westerly part of the UK mainland at Ardnamurchan Point. Lochaber also includes the Glenspean area and Loch Laggan - Monarch of the Glen country, and part of Argyll in the south west.
