Mallaig is a busy, bustling port that is located at the end of the Road to the Isles.
The Road to the Isles is the A830, and it meanders its ways from Fort William all the way to Mallaig. Mallaig is therefore easy to find, and impossible to forget with its remote location yet interesting and lively air.
If you are looking for a place to stretch your legs and breathe in the pure Scottish air, Mallaig could be the perfect spot for you; this is where the Mallaig Circuit Walk can be found. This walk uses well-constructed footpaths and trails to take you on a two mile walk about the area and the views of the harbour, Loch Nevis, and, on a clear day, Knoydart, are sublime.
Mallaig has an important claim to fame; it is where the Jacobite steam train (perhaps more famously known as the Hogwarts Express, featured in the Harry Potter films) terminates when it runs in the summer months. It runs from Fort William to Mallaig, following the Road to the Isles, and calls at Glenfinnan Station where there is a museum. Passengers can even enjoy a lovely meal in one of the train’s dining cars or stay overnight in one of the carriages.
