Fort William is 2.5 hours north of Glasgow and 1.5 hours south of Inverness, along the scenic A82. For those travelling from the East there are several routes off the A9, which can be taken, including from Perth and Aviemore. Nevis Range is situated 7 miles north of Fort William just off the A82 to Inverness; the route is well signposted.
