The West Highland Way ends in Fort William, a town along a sea loch named Loch Linnhe that's only about three miles from the base of Ben Nevis, Great Britain’s highest peak at 4,409 feet.

In fact we were in Craignure before we knew it and here we found ...
... not the liveliest places LOL!!!
We started by taking a little car ferry across Loch Sunart to Strontian which is where the Lourie family came from, hence the name of the original home farm Strontian. We had a look around and ended up at the pub later in the afternoon where we ran into an Irishman by the name of Matthew Murphy who had lived in the area for a good few years and felt we should go “o’er the hill” to Lochaline because there were ...
