Strung out along the A830 are some of the jewels in the chain of this Road to the Isles, culminating in the port of Mallaig where the ferry can be taken over the sea to Skye.
Mallaig is a thriving community and a  busy fishing village as well as a ferry port for Skye, and the Small Isles, with boat trips and visiting yachts adding to the hub of activity.
Arisaig sits in the beautiful bay of  Loch na Ceall, a haven for yachts because of its sheltered location.

It is also an idyllic spot from which to watch some of the most spectacular sunsets over the western seas.

While in a stunning setting Glenfinnan, of course, is home to the monument which commemorates one of Scotland’s most famous rebels, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Glenfinnan viaduct, made even more famous in the Harry Potter films, but an iconic image previously for its curving sweep around this amazing feat of engineering.

The Road to the Isles

The Road to the Isles encompasses some of the most iconic images of Scotland – from the Glenfinnan Viaduct and the Glenfinnan monument to the views out over the Small Isles and Skye to the spectacular sandy beaches from Traigh beach to the silver sands of Morar.

It is brimming with wildlife on land and in the sea and has a history that is close to the hearts of many Scots, with Loch Shiel being the place where Prince Charles Edward Stuart, Bonnie Prince Charlie, raised his standard at the start of the Jacobite Rising in 1745.

The road to the isles twists around many sheltered sea lochs of the area, from Loch Ailort to the fresh water Loch Morar, with the finest of heather hills, rolling landscapes and seascapes unfolding with each passing turn of the road.
And, of course, there is the famous Jacobite steam train which travels along the West Highland line between Fort William and Mallaig on its magical ‘Harry Potter’ journey in the summer months.
Truly a journey worth taking, take a voyage with our Road to the Isles map and savour this part of the West Highlands.
