  1. Why Not Travel To Fort William From Glasgow

Marked with beautiful views, the A82 Glasgow to Fort William route will give you a fabulous driving experience. You would first approach the great vistas located over Loch Lomond and from there you further move towards the Ben Lomond Mountain.

At the west shore of the loch, the road meets the shore line. The long and winding view calls for you to pull over and take a few moments to just enjoy the scene.

The road further heads northwards, where you reach the moorlands of Rannoch and the beautiful Glencoe valley that has magnificent mountains. You will witness the breath-taking view of the vistas while winding down the base of the Glencoe valley.  

Heading further to the north, you will reach Fort William, an outdoor town located on the west coast. Here you can enjoy the view of the vast sea and look at the sunset.


These were few of the many routes that you can explore with your family and friends or just by yourself. Make sure you don’t rush your journey as the roads in Scotland are not meant for high speed driving. Besides, you won’t be able to enjoy the view at high speeds.
