Inverlochy Roundabout was built in April 2016 to replace the traffic light controlled junction which had operated here for many years. Whilst the lights could be temperamental at times, it was rare for their failure to cause traffic problems, and the junction mostly seemed to work well. The junction lies just a few dozen metres north of Nevis Bridge on the A82 North Road in Fort William.

The roundabout is a mini roundabout which is simply painted onto the road surface, without even a bump, which means that a lot of traffic crossed the 'island'. This is particularly true of northbound traffic on the A82, for which the island lies slightly to the left on approach, forcing a very circuitous route to correctly negotiate the roundabout. The presence of a bus stop layby immediately to the north exacerbates the correct route, and so traffic is now also cutting across the hatching preceeding the bus stop. A set of lights has been retained immediately to the south of the junction for the pedestrian (and school) crossing from Claggan to Inverlochy.

The junction has just three arms, the A82 and Earl of Inverness Road, which is the only official access for the factory village of Inverlochy, originally built for workers of the Fort William Aluminium Smelter. The two access roads for Claggan are just too far away from the junction to be incorporated into the new roundabout.
