Fort William from Loch Linnhe

Fort William is the largest town in the West Highlands of Scotland. The scenery when travelling up Loch Linnhe from open sea is stunning and Captain Degerlund (Boudicca, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines) likened it to the Norwegian fjords, Chilean fjords and Alaskan fjords! Corran Narrows guards the entrance to upper Loch Linnhe and is 12 metres deep at low water springs.

We have a small pontoon facility open for all marine visitors to use from April to October.
