Fort William is not a large town, not compared with where we came from. ┬áThere’s no real problem with congestion or noise. ┬áNot like London or other cities. ┬áBut on the odd occasion you might want to escape and find a bit of peace and quiet, you don’t need to go far.
Just south of the town a drive up Lundavra Road brings you to the Blarmacfoldach viewpoint which commands a fantastic view of the town, Loch Linnhe and the surrounding countryside. ┬áA great place to sit and contemplate. ┬áFrom there the Old Military Road winds its way along the glen allowing a view of Ben Nevis from the South. ┬áBe careful to avoid the freely roaming sheep!
