Corpach and Ben Nevis, Scotland July 2011

I decided to take a trip across to Corpach (Scottish Gaelic: A’ Chorpaich) which is a large village just north of Fort William in Scotland. Back in 1478 there was a battle at Corpach that saw Clan Cameron rout Clan MacLean.

Corpach has a lock and a loch (well what us British would call a lock), e.g. a canal way with various lock gates, but it also is on the edge of Lochaber with spectacular views of Ben Nevis.

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles, and is located at the western end of the Grampian Mountains in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands, close to the town of Fort William.
