We start with a local departure for our journey north to Fort William which is situated on the southern end of the Great Glen on the shores of Loch Linnhe, beneath towering Ben Nevis - Britain's highest mountain. The surrounding countryside is some of Britain's most spectacular and romantic scenery. Its torrid history has produced over 30 battlefields in the Lochaber area alone!
