I was born in Burnley in Lancashire and then grew up on Merseyside. At 16 I left for London and an engineering apprenticeship with British Airways. Four years later I moved to Manchester and later into Cheshire. After forty years there working mainly at Manchester Airport, but also other UK and foreign airports I retired to Fort William. I had been visiting and exploring the Lochaber area every year since 2005 and fell in love with it all. I completed my first round of the Munro’s in 2016, a major achievement for me in my later years and living in England at the time. Now I get to enjoy the great outdoors all the time living in Lochaber.
Take a look around.
A short distance from Carinbrook is Corpach with some classic scenery and canal side walks.

Planning the days
Lochaber has so much to offer, no wonder it is called the outdoor capitol of the UK.
Ben Nevis a more challenging way
Lochaber is blessed with great mountains to conquer, explore, photograph or just admire.
The Glenfinnan area provides an excellent half day out. The railway viaduct, Jacobite rising memorial and Loch Shiel.
Just a short walk is Banavie, the Caledonian canal and the famous Neptune's staircase locks
Island days out
Why not have a day out by boat from Mallaig or Arisaig.
The classic steam train from Fort William to Mallaig runs right by our house.
