Fort William was a nice little town situated near the base of Ben Nevis, on the shores of Loch Lhinne.
The downtown was mostly dominated by touristy shops full of tartan-related souvenirs, all sorts of whiskey and shortbreads, and all the other cheap thingamajings that tourists like to get. As we were chiefly in the area for Ben Nevis, this did not disappoint us as we explored the town.
There were some pretty buildings, such as the Alexandra Hotel.
There were several churches, one of them with a lovely tree carving above the entrance.
There was a public library where we checked our email. Noticing that I was logging in from a different IP address than normal, Facebook made me validate my online identity.
A typical English breakfast that did us quite well after the Carn Mor Dearg Arete hike.
There was a nice cafe (Cafe 115) that we kept returning to for breakfast and afternoon tea. They had giant scones that were tasty, but quite different from the dense scones I'm used to in America. Theirs were more cake-like, delicately sweet with an airy crumb.
I found this sign sadly amusing.
We walked past this cemetery and the nursing home near it along this road quite a bit between Achintee Farm and Fort William.
We did not get a lolly.
