Property description

Fort William Backpackers is a charming Victorian building with a fun, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We know how important it is to be able to relax after a hard days exploring and our cosy hostel is the perfect place to re-charge your batteries and share the tales of your adventures.

We have a fabulous, elegant lounge with a REAL open fire, books, games, a hostel guitar and probably the best view in town! It�s a great place to meet like-minded people whilst drinking as much free tea, coffee & hot chocolate as you like!

Our fully equipped self-catering kitchen comes complete with everything you will need to prepare your meals & packed lunches and has plenty of storage and fridges available for you to use. There are a couple of supermarkets within a 10 minute walk so it�s easy to stock up with supplies and in the summertime you are welcome to use our BBQ on our patio.

We serve an optional breakfast of cereal, toast, fruit juice & a freshly baked Scottish scone. Its �2.00 for a �wee bit of everything� or, if you prefer, you can simply prepare your own. The choice is yours!

Our lovely spacious dining room has great views out to the surrounding countryside, free WiFi and an internet caf� style computer available for our guests to use.

We also have a private �Skype Den� with its own cosy fire that�s perfect for keeping in touch with loved ones and boasting about your latest adventures!

If the weather's good, we'll be outside enjoying our patio area either having a BBQ or sitting around the fire pit enjoying the stars so come and join us.

In the evening you can chill out in our lounge and exchange stories with fellow guests or stroll down to the choice of local pubs and restaurants that are literally minutes away. Fort William has a lively pub atmosphere and there is live music available on most nights. You can even have a dram or 2 of the local Ben Nevis whisky and head out to party �Highland Style� at the Skipinnish Ceilidh House.

You can start (or end) both the 'West Highland Way' & the 'Great Glen Way' in Fort William and there are countless walking routes that are suitable for all abilities. Have a chat with us and we can recommend the best options for you and can lend you a map.

Ben Nevis - Britain's highest mountain, sits just around the corner and below it, Glen Nevis - perhaps Scotland's prettiest glen, with its wonderful waterfalls and ancient pine forest.

If you are planning on tackling the mighty Ben Nevis you will not be alone at Fort Willy Backpackers! Again our staff can give you advice and make sure that you are properly equipped before you head off. We can also arrange guided walks up Ben Nevis if you would prefer to go with qualified guides.

If biking is your thing there are endless options of trails that cater for all standards of riders from beginner to World class level. The nearby Nevis Range offers the only lift served downhill biking in the country and is well worth a visit. If you want to bring your own bike you can store it in our shed and we have bike wash facilities available. There is also a good bike hire shop on the high street if you can�t bring your own.

There is a vast array of local water available for canoeing and kayaking and several outdoor activity companies offering a variety of activities. You can go canyoning or gorge walking, white water rafting and funyakking, horseriding or even paragliding!

Even in winter Fort William stays busy with skiing, snow-boarding, mountaineering & ice-climbing all nearby to our fantastic location.

Dramatic and eerie, Glencoe & Glenfinnan, and the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven also await a few miles down the road and make excellent day trips from the hostel.

If all of this sounds far too much like hard work then perhaps go for a boat trip on Loch Linnhe to visit the seals or just take it easy amidst the wonderful scenery. The Ben Nevis distillery, Inverlochy Castle, The ruined Fort, and Glen Nevis can all be reached without breaking a sweat!
You can perhaps catch the awesome steam train and head to Mallaig along one of the prettiest railway lines in the world. You even get to go over the Glenfinnan viaduct just like Harry Potter on the Hogwarts Express.

Whether you plan to chill out or perhaps test your skills on a World Cup mountain bike trail...Fort Willy Backpackers is the place for you!

Our friendly award-winning staff are committed to ensuring you make the most out of your time in Fort William. We also LOVE the outdoors and can give you our 'top tips' to help you plan your adventure.
