Fully affiliated to Scottish Chambers of Commerce, Lochaber Chamber of Commerce members are businesses, large and small. The Chamber actively promotes collaboration among the business community and acts as a voice for them on important issues both locally and nationally.

“Outdoor Capital of the UK” is Lochaber Chamber of Commerce’s tourism element. Under the OCUK brand we publicise, sponsor and promote Lochaber as a tourism destination. We do so through our website www.outdoorcapital.co.uk and through a range of other collaborative marketing initiatives and activities. We promote Fort William and Lochaber as the best place in the UK for everyone to experience the outdoors; with a view to developing local jobs and wealth and encouraging sustainable economic growth.

At the foot of Ben Nevis, in the hear of the Outdoor Capital of the UK, stands the historic town of Fort William.

This stunning locale is the gateway to the incredible Scottish Highlands, where visitors can discover towering peaks, majestic lochs and the rich history of the Scottish clans. Every year, Fort William is visited by the Waverley paddle steamer, and if the timing is right you can take a day trip to the beautiful island of Iona, famously ‘The cradle of Christianity’ in Scotland.

We look forward to welcoming your cruise guests.
