The former job centre in Fort William’s High Street has now been refurbished to provide modern accommodation for a number of the town’s organisations.

The vintage cafe run by Nimble Fingers is already a major attraction for other organisations, while Care Lochaber and Lochaber Hope top right, also have accommodation in the Waverley House building.

Lochaber Hope has its additional accommodation in the building’s New Connections centre, but still has its base in the Belford Road.

Care Lochaber’s Allison Kane told us: ‘We are excited to have the new office space on the High Street and this is going to be a great space to promote the Car Scheme alongside Lochaber Hope and its new venture.

‘We were in An Drochiad in Claggan previous to this but have been working from home since the pandemic began.’

Care Lochaber will host another public open day on August 11.
