On the banks of the river Lochy by Inverlochy castle, and nestling in the footprint of the mighty Ben Nevis, sits the Stramash Fort William Outdoor Nursery campus.

In the wide grassy area stretching to 5 acres, and with woods to explore and a real life castle to hear stories in, Stramash Outdoor nursery gives the children of the “UKs Outdoor Capital” the chance to learn and play, explore and communicate in a truly unique outdoor setting. 

Year round fun and learning in all Highland weathers, various clever shelters and cosy cabins keep your wee ones adventuring Jan – December. Situated in the heart of Fort William with easy access from the A82. We are your local outdoor nursery.

Get ready for your wee ones to have a wild childhood at Stramash Fort William! 

“Stramash seem to have got the balance just right between self directed play and learning directed by staff. The range of activities is broad, practical and enjoyable. Staff seem very well informed and motivated. They have developed a good community atmosphere with kids and parents”
