The Highlands of Scotland are steeped in history and the Fort William area has an abundance of castles to explore.

Some are ruins with dramatic outlines and others are still used to this day.

For example; Inverlochy Castle built in 1280, is situated at the mouth of the River Lochy close to Fort William.

Be careful not to get mixed up with one of  Queen Victoria’s favourite retreats, “New” Inverlochy Castle built in  1863, which is nearby.

Eilean Donan Castle, an instantly recognisable image, built near the bridge over to the Isle of Skye on a small tidal island where three lochs meet.

Castle Stalker is nestled close to the shore in Port Appin between Glencoe and Oban.

Iconic landmarks are here waiting for you to discover them.
