Snowgoose Mountain Centre operates from Corpach, Fort William.

Take the A82 north out of Fort William for about 1.5 miles. At the set of traffic lights one mile north of Fort William take the A830 which is signposted to Mallaig.
At the village of Corpach, 4 miles out from Fort William, opposite the Key Grocery store (which is on the right facing Mallaig) is a left hand turn to Corpach Basin. We are 40 yards down this road to Corpach Railway Station on the left.Find us immediately before the railway crossing. We are sign posted with a large blue / white sign on the main road(A830) as Snowgoose Mountain Centre / Smiddy Bunkhouse & Blacksmiths Backpackers Hostel.

If you are coming to us by train from Glasgow then book your ticket to Corpach - stay on the train in Fort William as this train will then go out to Mallaig - sometimes you may need to change to the local train. Get off 2 stops after Fort William at Corpach. If you ring us we will meet you off the train. This is all much easier that getting off the train in Fort William then having to catch a bus out to us - or walk!!

If you are coming by local bus then buses (Service No 45) leave Corpach / Fort William every 20 minutes from 6am to 6pm - every hour thereafter until 22.30. These buses leave from Middle Street in Fort William. In Corpach the bus stop is a 2 minute walk from the hostel. We have local bus / train / ferry timetables available or look at; buses to Mallaig - try Sheil Buses; for fruther afield Scottish City Link; for travel by train First Scotrail; for journey planning try www.

The location of Snowgoose Mountain Centre is at the head of the tidal waters of Loch Linnhe, 20 miles in either direction from the open sea, within a very short distance of widely ranging grades of white water, rock and mountains, means that we can offer an extensive range of water and mountain based activities for all grades, from one hour to one week. We are 5 miles from the superb Aonach Mhor ski area with its all year round gondola facility and 15 miles from Glencoe.
