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.
