    Hi @Rusty

    You definitely want to visit Glen Nevis and Steall Falls for landscape shots
    Also the area around Banavie train station will give you great views of Ben Nevis and head along from there to Neptune's staircase for nice reflections on the Caledonian Canal and more views of the mountains.
    You can also head down to Loch Linnhe and Loch Eil from Corpach for more mountain/loch landscape
    If you want extensive panoramas over Fort William area, take the gondola up the Nevis Range and follow the walking trails.

    Hi @Rusty I'm not sure which way you are travelling to get to Fort William but a stop off or a visit to Glencoe are is also really worthwhile as the scenery is stunning.   Similarly if you have transport - a drive from Fort William to Mallaig is amazing.  From Arising be sure to take the single track coast road along by the wonderful white sands.  You also get amazing sunsets over Eigg and Rum.   Hope you have a great holiday!!!

    Hi @Rusty  over towards Ardnamurchan, not that far from Fort William, you will find fantastic views and an abundance of wildlife. Near Fort William you also have the Glenfinnan Viaduct where you can see the Steam Train crossing. Have a great holiday in Lochaber and pop into the icentre in Fort William on the high street where the staff will be happy to show you on maps of some great spots :)
