Urquhart Castle

Nestled on the scenic shores of Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle is one of Scotland's largest castles, chronicling soul-stirring stories and secrets of the nation. It is said that Urquhart Castle has been on this site since the Iron Age. Standing in ruins for hundreds and thousands of years, parts of this stunning structure have been rebuilt with utmost precision. From Jacobite Risings to Wars of Scottish Independence, the castle, during its heyday, has braved myriad ravages and today, its ruins stand as a striking testament to its storied, legendary past. Situated strategically over a craggy promontory, the castle is further accentuated by the sweeping expanses of the Great Glen and by the iconic Grant Tower which affords astounding views of Loch Ness. The castle boasts a troupe of stirring ruins like the Great Hall which evokes unbridled fascination, the eerie prison cell where tales of the castle's eventful past still linger, and an array of artifacts like the ornate Urquhart Ewer.

West Highland Museum

West Highland Museum in Cameron Square is thought to be one of Fort William's oldest buildings. Inside, you'll find displays of the area's natural and cultural history, and archaeology. The icing on the cake is a display of artifacts from the 1745 rebellion, including a secret portrait of the young pretender himself. Wheelchair visitors have level access and special toilet facilities.

Clan Cameron Museum

Even if you are not of the Clan Cameron, this small museum is worth a visit. Displays cover the pretender's last refuge and many exhibits from the 1745 rebellion, a great deal of clan and regimental history, and commando items (they were trained nearby during WW2). Under special circumstances and by appointment the museum may be opened out of season.

Meall na Teanga

A popular mountain among avid hikers, climbers and walking enthusiasts, the Meall na Teanga is a sheer beauty located in Scotland. The 918 meters (3,012 feet) high mountain offers breathtaking views and a panoramic view which does not fail to impress one's eyes! A number of paths lead to this mountain and it can be accessed easily. Meall na Teanga is also known as 'Tango' amidst the locals.


The very precarious yet charming three-arched rubble bridge on the river Spean is one that is not to be treaded upon but to be admired from a distance. Currently only a small arch survives at the east bank while the rest of the bridge has collapsed and hence been taken over by thick vegetation all over. Also the Spean bridge village is a quaint little destination with various tourist attractions like the Commando Memorial, Kilmonivaig Church etc. A walk around the village will provide the traveller with spectacular views of the northern faces of Ben Nevis and Aonach Mor.

Loch Ness Cruises

Taking a ride on the Loch Ness Cruise is enjoyable, relaxing and very adventurous. Cruises per hour on the Nessie Hunter, which is equipped with color sonar, are truly exciting. For further details, please check the website.
