Nightlife in Fort William

I'm going to Fort William very soon. I like a pub with quite up to date music, but also like a good drink and a good laugh? Can anyone recommend somewhere?

No, sorry.

More options if you don't want the quite up to date music though.

Don't know much about the music scene in Fort William, but I did read a fantastic review of the food at a Hotel and Restaurant called the Lime Tree in yesterdays Scotland section of the Sunday Times.


Wish I could find a link to the article - makes me want to make the long journey north!

The Ben Nevis Inn is really good, has good music(not always up to date but live), and a great atmosphere but its a wee bit out of town, its out at Achintee at the foot of Ben Nevis.

The wee bar underneath Nevisport is Ok, the bands are frequently cheesy metal covers bands though!

In the town the best bar is probably the Grog and Gruel, An Croitear (The Crofter) comes a (distant) second. You should get a decent laugh in both these bars although the locals can be a wee bit lairy. I'm allowed to say that because my family are from there!

I'd second the Ben Nevis Inn in Achintee, it's a great pub with a great atmosphere. If you can't get any accomodation near by you could always camp at the Glen Nevis campsite.
