Exploring Fort William and Lochaber
Right in the heart of Fort William is the West Highland Museum, charting the history of the West Highlands through absorbing exhibitions and fascinating artefacts.
One particular museum highlight is the intriguing collection of artefacts focused on Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite Risings, such as ‘The Secret Portrait of Prince Charles Edward Stewart’. Other museum highlights include the Prince’s waistcoat, Rob Roy’s sporran and a gift from Queen Victoria to her Scottish servant John Brown.
Head to the neighbouring village of Corpach to visit an attraction that’s been millions of years in the making! Treasures of the Earth is one of Europe’s most impressive collections of crystals, gems and fossils. Admire sparkling gems and make sure you check out the skulls of prehistoric predators like Tyrannosaurus Rex and a snarling sabre-toothed tiger.
