In Fort William
As the SSDT takes over the main car park at the west end of Fort William for the duration, there is no public parking available in that car park throughout the week. Instead, a park and ride facility is provided from the car park at the other end of the waterfront, behind the Nevis Centre and the Morrisons supermarket.
Shuttle buses will run from the signed area at the Nevis Centre to the bottom of the ramp in the West End Car Park continually throughout Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and a limited service will operate through the week. The West End Car Park will provide a drop-off area and limited disabled parking.
The countryside of Lochaber was never designed for parking large numbers of vehicles. Whilst some of the popular groups have dedicated parking, it can be difficult at others so get there early or consider perhaps visiting one of the less popular groups.
Always park considerately:
- Never park where there are yellow Police cones and follow the directions of the Police.
- Always park COMPLETELY off the road. A general rule is, if there is a solid white line down the side of the road then, if your car is TOTALLY behind that line, you'll not cause any problems.If there is just a grass verge then ensure your vehicle is completely on grass, not tarmac. If you can't get your vehicle totally off the road, then please find another spot where you can.
- NEVER, EVER, EVER park in the passing places on single track roads. (Yes, people really do this!) These passing places are there to allow vehicles to pass each other safely. They aren't parking lay-bys!
