Situated in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, beneath the shadow of Ben Nevis and on the shores of Loch Linnhe, Fort William boasts a feast for the eyes few stations can match. It's no surprise that the town is known as the Outdoor Capital of the UK - visitors can literally pick up a footpath a short distance from the station and into the rolling hills of Lochaber and on to Britain's highest mountain, so be sure to pack your hiking boots. Rail first arrived in Fort William in 1894 as the terminus for the famous West Highland Line - one of the world's great railway journeys. The modern station opened in 1975. With daily services to and from Glasgow with its connections to most major UK cities - including the Caledonian Sleeper from London Euston - Fort William fast became the UK's most popular outdoor activity destination. The station is also the starting point for The Jacobite, the only steam-powered train still running on the mainline in Great Britain.
