Fassfern (Scottish Gaelic: An Fasadh Feàrna) is a hamlet on the north shore of Loch Eil in the Scottish Highlands, at the bottom of Glen Suileag and almost opposite Duisky.[1] Historically it was spelled Fassiefern and comprised part of Clan Cameron territory. It is just off the A830 from Fort William to Mallaig, and about 6 miles (10 km) west of Fort William in Lochaber, and is in the Scottish council area of Highland.
