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

Shopping | Ginger - Knitwear shop

Anna Skea has been designing and making knitwear in the area since 1980, and retails high quality knitwear in Mallaig. You can find the shop in The Morrison Building (which used to be the old Fishermen's Mission).

Anna's pieces are very individual. Inspiration comes from the rock formations, seashore and living environment of the Highlands with colours and textures reflecting these sources.

Our colourful yarns are natural and sustainable, felted pieces use wool sourced in the Highlands. All our knitwear can be made to order so if we don't have the right size, colour or you'd just like slightly longer sleeves just ask.

We make everything at Ginger: coats, dresses, tunics, menswear, hats, scarves, socks and more. We also stock a range of exquisite smelling soaps, cushions and jewellery. Drop in for a look, whether it's a gift for someone you're looking for or a well deserved present for yourself. Womenswear and menswear available.
