The current weather plays a massive part within the Fort William 'experience', being as it is one of the few places on earth for some reason totally immune to accurate forecasting.

okay, it would be a costly day at the video store and it might take you almost all of the night BUT look closely throughout the movies becoming personal, Braveheart, Highlander, Restless Natives, Harry Potter and Rob Roy and you may certainly see Fort William. May be far better get some good popcorn in...
