Mallaig is a picturesque village/fishing port on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands. Mallaig is linked to Fort William by the A830 "Road to the Isles", by bus and by rail on the West Highland Railway Line. This traditional fishing port connects to the Isles of Skye, Rum Eigg, Muck and Canna by ferry and is a popular tourist destination. 

The village of Mallaig was founded in 1840 as a fishing village. After the arrival of the railway the population and local economy expanded rapidly boosted by the introduction of ferries between the port  and the islands, becoming the main commercial fishing port on the west coast of Scotland. 

The picturesque village and harbour provides the perfect base to explore the surrounding hills, lochs and islands.
