Stories of old battles, encampments, mass burials and bloody massacres abound. Indeed Bonnie Prince Charlie himself & his army climbed the hill behind the Lodge on his way to Perth after staying overnight in the village. General Wade built roads & bridges connecting the Forts William, Augustus and George in the 18 th century.
The Caledonian Canal is a 5 minute walk away, built to enable ships to pass calmly through the Glens and avoid the dangers of Cape Wrath on the NE coast.
Iron ore was mined from the hills by French prisoners of war, smelted in the Glen and then taken by boat through the lochs, round the Moray coast & down to Newcastle to be cast into canon to fight Napoleon.
At the turn of the century a railway was built by the local gentry and it ran from Spean Bridge to Fort Augustus with the intention of continuing up to Inverness. Regrettably it closed in 1946. There are still old tunnels & bridges to be seen along the way.
