Fort William - United Kingdom

In a celebration of mountains and the culture that surrounds them, and in recognition of the importance of climbing and walking tourism to the town, the Fort William Mountain Film Festival is held there each year. For a number of years this volunteer led festival has concentrated mostly around film but, starting in the Year of Highland Culture - Highland 2007, its scope was widened, and it dropped the 'film' from its title. Fort William Mountain Festival websiteFort William has two major shinty teams, Fort William Shinty Club and Kilmallie Shinty Club.The opening sequence for Warner Bros. 200

"It was named "Fort William"' after William Of Orange, who was a Dutch aristocrat and a Protestant Prince of Orange from his birth. Also he was Stadtholder of the United Netherlands from 28 June 1672, King of England and King of Ireland from 13 February 1689, and King of Scotland from 11 April 1689, in each case until his death."

"A very nice location just south of there - Onich Hotel at Onich on loch Linnhe."
Mas :
"We stayed at one 2 years ago called Myrtle Bank Guest house, it was gorgeous and for a double room en suite we were £75.00 per night. It is a bit pricey but it was worth every penny of it, as we actually got married that weekend in Fort William."
