See & Do
The Ben Nevis Distillery Visitor Centre in Fort William marks the beginning of the ‘Road to the Isles’. Discover the secrets of the whisky making process and enjoy the unique sensation of the Dew of Ben Nevis.
The Caledonian Canal is an outstanding feature in the landscape of the Fort William area, and the Great Glen. It is a natural geological fault line stretching from Fort William to the South West and the North East. It was constructed by the famous Thomas Telford.
The Canal is open to many vessels that enter both from Loch Linnhe and the Atlantic Ocean. It makes passage through the Great Glen Canal lock systems and natural water lochs including the legendry Loch Ness, Inverness and North Sea.
So, for an interesting day out, why not take the opportunity to enjoy the canal by marvelling at the views of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain and the Grey Corries. Or perhaps, you might fancy watching ships as they navigate the loch gates at Corpach Basin, Neptune’s Staircase at Banavie and Gairlochy near Spean Bridge for a great day out in Lochaber with a difference.
Treasures of the Earth is in the village of Corpach, 4 miles from Fort William on the A830 “Road to the Isles” in the west Highlands of Scotland.
Treasures of the Earth, boasts Europe’s finest private collection of Crystals, Gemstones and Fossils in atmospheric caves.
