Things to do in Fort William
There are lots of things to do Fort William and Via Ferrata is just one of them. This intense experience will take you on an epic 500 metre journey around a magical and previously inaccessible, bedrock amphitheatre. The stunning 90 metre waterfall can be seen at all points of the route.

Hugely popular in the Italian Dolomites and across the Alps, Via Ferratas allow non skilled climbers to achieve heights and access areas they thought not possible.

Via Ferrata Scotland is the second of its kind in the UK, the first being the Via Ferrata at Honister Pass in the Lake District. Developed in 2007 by Mark Weir, the Via Ferrata climbs up the side of Fleetwith Pike (2,126 feet high) following old mine workings.
