by car from Fort William along the A830 - the Road to the Isles - and leave
your car at Mallaig. Our regular ferry service "The Western Isles"
run by Bruce Watt leaves Mallaig fishing quay on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
all year round at 10.15 and 14.15 for a journey of about 45 minutes. Brucey
also does extra sailings in the summer.

By rail you can get a sleeper from Glasgow and London. The end of the journey is spectacular - over Rannoch Moor and into Fort William. From Fort William to the West Highland Line brings you to Mallaig. There is often a steam engine on this route - the Jacobite Steam Railway - made world famous now for the breathtaking Harry Potter car and train sequence filmed on the Glenfinnan viaduct. On this final part of the journey make sure you get a window seat (and watch out for small wizards in stolen cars). You can get train times from Scotrail - either online or by phoning 08457 48 49 50
|Many choose to arrive by Shanks's pony - the walks in through Glendessary and Glen Meadall or from Kinlochhourn via Barrisdale are a tremendous wilderness experience.|
you decide to walk in, you could post your glad rags to us in advance
so that the opportunity of fresh seafood, real ale and
. clean socks
can keep you going on that last mile or two.
