The Scottish Highlands seem near mythical to some, thanks to the cult popularity of the Highlander movies and series. Fortunately, the Highlands are easily accessible and a far safer environment than what’s depicted in the films. Fort William is the charming town that serves as an entry point to the Highlands, which comprises the Ben Nevis mountain range, Glen Nevis Valley, and the Loch Linnhe River. Visitors come here predominantly for the hiking, mountain climbing, skiing, and canoeing experiences.
