This page attempts to give a flavour of the West Highlands, starting from Oban, seen in this view along the quayside, with the fake temple that was built in the 1930's to provide work on the hill in the background.
A view across the bay at Oban.
Looking from the point in the view above to the distillery and, on the hill above, the folly.
Oban is an important ferry port for services to the isles, this photo show the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry Lord of the Isles berthed at the ferry terminal.
A last view of Oban from near the ferry terminal, the folly is in this one as well!
Fort William nestles between Loch Linnhe and Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain at 4,406ft. When we've visited we've camped at a site in Glen Nevis, right next to a flank of Ben Nevis.
Sticking with Ben Nevis, and the valley beside it, Glen Nevis, is a couple of views taken in Glen Nevis, starting with one from the camp site in the Glen of the Ben and one taken as far up the Glen as you can drive.
Staying up in the Nevis range, the mountain next to Ben Nevis, Aonach Mor has a cable car that takes you some 2,300 feet up the mountain. The views from the walks that you can take from the cable car station can be awesome, provided the cloud level isn't below you ! To start with, two views from the cable car, one looking straight down, the other looking towards the Great Glen.
