The climate of Fort William (Scotland)
Fort William is located in the western part of Scotland on the banks of the river Linnhe. Fort William also is the largest city in the Highlands. Fort William is situated at the foot of the highest mountain in the United Kingdom; the Ben Nevis. The city was named after the stadholder William (III) of Orange who at that time was king of England, Ireland and Scotland. The last few years Fort William has presented itself as the survival city in Great Britain. During the summer mountaineering and mountain biking are very popular. During the winter several winter sport activities can be enjoyed.
Fort William has a moderate maritime climate with relatively mild winters and cool summers. This is caused by the influence of the warm Gulf Stream. In the higher regions this is not the case; temperatures hardly ever rise above 10 degrees Celsius here. In the area around Fort William you can come across several micro climates. This is caused by the location of Fort Williams, the influence of the sea and the high mountains in this area.
