Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stopped to visit Fort William on our way North along Loch Ness. We tried several spots along the high street for lunch with no success. We were met with long lines or filled restaurants. We didn’t time it very well. We settled on a very lacklustre pizza. The high street was wonderful as far as shopping goes. There were lots of souvenir shops and interesting store fronts. It was also pedestrian only which made it extra convenient.

The views are spectacular round every corner.
It is so photogenic that you could stop every few yards for photographs.Glenfinnan monument view is out of this world, along with the famous viaduct. Time your viaduct view for when the steam train passes.
The white sands of Morar are also a must.
I could continue for hours. Is is definitely a must see. You may also want to take the steam train from FortWilliam

Nice drive between Mallaig and Fort William. Favorite stops were the Glenfinnan Visitor Center and St Mary and St Finnan Church. Lovely views and lochs and mountains.

Fort William is a busy place full of shops, restaurants hotels, B&Bs and attractions. It is the gateway too the Scottish Highlands and sits below Ben Nevis amidst stunning scenery.

Always enjoy this road to Skye. Lochs and dams, mountains and trees. Even better when the heather is in flower.

Well worth the trip. Fantastic scenery, great views and walking. Plenty of good bird watching, if that’s your thing.
