There’s nowhere better to experience Scotland’s adventure offering than in Fort William, the UK’s adventure capital. With Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis; the country’s deepest loch, Loch Morar; and beautiful glens, forests and beaches in between, you won’t fail to be amazed by the sheer beauty of the Highland countryside.

Spend a weekend in the luxury Scandinavian-style Birchbrae Holiday Lodges in Fort William; they offer the ideal base for an action-packed break in the Scottish Highlands. Set in a wildlife-rich environment, with bird feeders outside each lodge window, you can watch birds such as siskin, coal tits and great spotted woodpecker. The lodges are also ideally located for both avid hill walkers or those who just prefer a gentle stroll, with a footpath leading to the gushing Inchree waterfall and majestic views over Loch Linnhe.

Venture just a few miles from your lodge and you will be greeted with a whole host of adventure activities to choose from.

Choose from a range of activities at Snowgoose Mountain Centre, the outdoor skills training company. The experienced guides will help you get out and go for it with a range of activities such as kayaking, canoeing, dingy sailing, rock climbing, mountaineering or scrambling.

Why not explore the famous Glenbogle Estate, home to BBC’s Monarch of the Glen? Highland Activities offer a range of outdoor activities on both land and water. Ever fancied clay pigeon shooting, 4x4 driving, quad biking or gorge walking? Well now’s your chance!

If you have never tried sea-kayaking or even if you are a seasoned hand – get your adrenaline pumping and give it a go. Rockhopper Sea Kayaking will take a journey into new waters and explore uninhabited islands lying amongst some of the most spectacular coastal, mountain and island scenery in Scotland. You might also be lucky enough to spot seals, dolphins, porpoise and otters, along with a huge variety of coastal birds including the majestic White-Tailed Sea Eagle.

Don’t think that you have to be an adrenaline junkie to have a go. Whatever your age or level of experience, there’s an adventure activity on land, air or water for you to try.
