Fort William is also home to Aonach Moor, the base for the ski resort in Fort William. During the winter season, you are offered here the highest skiing in Scotland, as well as snowboarding, with all the equipment available for higher. When the snow has cleared there are various events running, you can take a gondola trip half way up and attempt the walk back down, this is quite difficult and probably best for experienced walkers.

The gondola's, the only in Scotland, running constantly, weather permitting, and those who are experienced in mountain biking will perhaps be interested in cycling down the purpose built track, this is extremely difficult but offers great views and a one off experience. Just an hour from Fort William you will find the quaint town of Mallaig, there are various ferries running from here to a few of the small island's dotted around if you perhaps are interested in investigating a little further. There are also many tourist attractions, including the Mallaig marine centre, Mallaig Heritage Centre and much more.
