Fort William is the largest town in the West Highlands of Scotland, with a population of just under 11,000, and is right in the middle of one of the most scenic areas of Britain. Life here in Lochaber has a different pace from the rest of Britain - the pace is gentler and folk are more friendly and welcoming than you may be used to, with everywhere a strong sense of community and identity.
You will find your perfect lifestyle here - in the town you have every urban facility, whilst nearby is practically every outdoor activity you can think of - walking across empty hills, climbing on some of the most challenging technical routes in Britain, mountain biking on world-class tracks, sailing, scuba-diving, kayaking, fishing and golf. There is a modern leisure centre in the town, a ski-lift at Aonach Mor, and the area even has an ice-climbing wall.
Education is of a high standard, with modern schools and facilities and a thriving Gaelic culture which is most apparent in the musical life of the area, with far too many talented musicians than seems fair for the size of the population!
Access to the area is by good, empty roads (which are rather busier in the high season) or by rail over the most beautiful line in Britain from Glasgow - Sleeper services operate directly to London.
Altogether, the training and facilities offered by the Craig Nevis Surgery, our own Belford Hospital and the Postgraduate Centre in Inverness make Fort William irresistible. Doesn't it?
