Things to do

Visit Fort William, The Outdoor Capital of Lochaber, and climb the mighty Ben Nevis.

Discover the dramatic landscape and history of Glencoe. Take a wildlife safari to seek out Scotland’s Big Five. Little Five and so much more. Climb aboard the Jacobite and steam down the romantic Road to the Isles to the wee coastal villages of Arisaig and Mallaig. Hop onto a ferry and take a cruise to the Small Isles of Eigg, Rum, Canna and Muck. Explore the wilderness of Knoydart. Search for Jacobite gold in Loch Arkaig. Head out west, way out west, to Ardnamurchan Point and discover the singing sands, turquoise seas and ancient volcanoes of the West Highland Peninsulas.

This is Wild Lochaber where great adventures begin. See

Looking for something else to do with your time off or will you just be relaxing in the sunshine? Masterplan Adventure are running some small extra events using maps from their Coast and Islands week which takes place the week before Lochaber 2021. See for further information.

Opportunities to play golf include the Day 2 area or next to Day 3 at Arisaig.

Laggan Wolftrax (mountain biking) is half way between Creag Meagaidh and Creag Dhubh and nearer to Fort William are further trails at Aonach Mor and the option of a gondola ride.

Google has apparently updated advice on going up Ben Nevis!

Note that the “tourist” route can get very crowded and please don’t be the ones wearing sandals to the summit.
