Glenfinnan | The world-renowned story of Bonnie Prince Charlie 's fight for the British throne gathered momentum at Glenfinnan where he raised the Jacobite standard and rallied his clansmen for battle.
Mallaig | At the end of the ‘Romantic Road to the Isles’ and the West Highland Railway Line lies Mallaig, just over an hour from Fort William. To go further afield, board one of the ferries either to Skye or to the Small Isles of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
Morar | As the Atlantic Ocean rolls in past the Small Isles, its azure shallows tumble on to sparkling white beaches which have long lured photographers and film-makers – none more so than the stretches from Traigh Beach to the silver sands of Morar where 'Local Hero' and 'Highlander' were filmed.
Arisaig | This is the area where the renowned west coast sunset can be enjoyed at its best. There can be no more magical sight than the sun as it disappears behind the islands in a riot of pink, red and purple, setting the mountains of Rum and Skye ablaze with colour.
Lochailort | Loch Ailort cuts its way in from the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The loch, with its clean and sheltered waters was where Scottish fish farming was pioneered. Just a mile further north at Polnish the road passes the old white church which was used in the film 'Local Hero'.
The Small Isles | Unlike many groups each island is distinct and different in geography, agronomy, population and ownership. From Muck in the south, through Eigg with its tooth-like Sgurr, and Rum, mountainous and mysterious in the clouds, to Canna in the north, the Islands offer a wonderful variety of scenery, wildlife and lifestyle.
Knoydart | The Knoydart peninsula is only accessible by boat from Mallaig or by a 20 mile hike on foot. A wonderful area for walking and camping, this is truly a miles-from-anywhere, get-away-from-it-all place. The Old Forge has the accolade of being the most remote pub in mainland Britain

About Us - Visitors Feedback

This newly renovated flat used to be the Doctor's surgery and is about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Mallaig. It opened in March 2015 and has magnificent views towards the small isles of Eigg and Rum and overlooks the railway line where the steam train runs in the summer. If you come by train we can usually pick you up from the station.

Many thanks for another week in this perfect chalet. The weather has been much kinder to us than it was last year and sundowners on the patio in the sun looking out across the sparkling sea, takes some beating.

Beautiful home, stunning views, amazing local beaches and what about the heatwave that lasted a full week +23C, unheard of. Skye was magical.

We have really enjoyed our time here and were blessed with good weather – although too hot at times! We took the Calmac ferry to the isles of Muck, Eigg and Rum (on different days) and lazed on the beach at Morar. We enjoyed a meal at the Steam Inn, saw a deer in the garden one morning, photographed the sunsets across the garden, visited the smokehouse at Glenuig, lots of really relaxing things – and the time just flew by!

The cabin was warm and comfortable and very well equipped. I think you've thought of everything. The leaflets and ferry timetables were invaluable. The wifi was very handy too. Thank you for a truly lovely week.

Well we have been here for nearly two weeks and it isn't long enough! Thank you for your friendly hospitality, which we have appreciated. The apartment was pretty much perfect for us: well-equipped, deceptively spacious and with views that it is a privilege to be able to see on a daily basis. The location here is excellent too: quiet but close to town.

Thank you so much for looking after us so well: from suggestions on what to do for wet days to little touches like fresh flowers on arrival. This place is gorgeous with amazing views! What a great spot for exploring Mallaig and the small isles.

We have had a wonderful stay with plenty of good walks and highly recommend the sea kayaking from Arisaig.
PS. Loved sitting on the bench watching the steam train go by!

Just a brief break in a lovely cabin in a fantastic location. Thankfully only one day of “Scottish” weather so we enjoyed a great trip to Inverie – beautiful sunshine! Challenging walk up to the top loch from the cabin. Seals, porpoises and an otter! Simply great.
