Forget London, Fort William is the UK’s official outdoor capital city. It’s one of the most exhilarating places to start from for your DofE Gold expedition and a fantastic place for a celebratory ice cream at the end. Nestling at the foot of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, it is a mecca for hill-walkers of all shapes and sizes and easily escaped to from London on an exciting overnight sleeper train and buses from Glasgow and Edinburgh. Starting your Gold DofE expedition here will give you not only some of Scotland’s most impressive peaks but also an impressive entry on your CV.
