  • Fort William, passing land for those who go/come to the highlands, stopped to fill up and rest a little because the journey with its curves and against curves is a bit dangerous and there are many speed controls.... Well what is certain is that I loved this city and its center, the main street next to the train station (place where you can take the Jacobite train), its beautiful and colorful gardens and statues! This large chapel with its tower and great stained glass window, combined with the sloping cover and brownish color, does not go unnoticed, is perhaps the most beautiful work in the city and therefore it is mandatory to visit it! But the whole city is very beautiful (go to the banks of the river, which passes together the hundred of the city)
