Lochaber (including Moidart, Ardnamurchan, Morvern, Arisaig and Mallaig) offers plenty of opportunities to engage in a range of adventurous outdoor activities, including rock climbing, paragliding, mountaineering and canyoning. See links for local operators.
Winter sports include ice-climbing, skiing and winter mountaineering on the Nevis range, just north of Fort William. The Ben Nevis range can offer some of the best off-piste skiing for the intermediate and experienced skiers, as well as opportunities for beginners. The Glencoe Ski Centre is also just over an hour's drive from Fort William.
