• The sea water Loch Linnhe reflects the UK's largest mountain Ben Nevis (1344m) near Fort William. The waterway links the North sea with the west Atlantic coast via Loch Ness. At the foot of the mountain the British army garrisoned its troops in the 18th century against the Jacobites who back the Catholic heir to the throne of Bonnie Prince Charlie. Fort William was named after King William of Orange the Dutch protestant monarch who took the British throne in the late 17th century.
