Inverness-shire has plenty of attractions to visit during your stay:
West Highland Railway - Running North from Fort William to Mallaig and South to Glasgow, this line is one of the most scenic in the world. In the summer, the Jacobite Steam train runs along the Fort William to Mallaig Stretch - well worth a visit
Nevis Range Skiing Area - Scotland's only cable car will effortlessly whisk you thousands of feet up Aonach Mor to enjoy the skiing in the winter or the spectacular views and walks in the summer.
Caledonian Canal - An engineering masterpiece of its time, this canal system forms a navigable link between Fort William on the West coast and Inverness on the East coast by joining the various Lochs of the Great Glen. Just outside Fort William, you can watch the boats passing through the cascading locks at Neptunes Staircase, now beautifully illuminated at night.
Loch Ness - A short drive away you can visit this famous loch for some Nessie spotting or see the picturesque Urquhart Castle.
Road To the Isles - The Road from Fort William to Mallaig (which is the starting point for journey to many of the Western Isles) is yet another spectacular Highland Route passing the dazzling white Sands of Morar and the impressive memorial to Bonnie Prince Charlie - The Glenfinnan Monument - which overlooks Loch Sheil where the Prince is said to have landed.
