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 south of Skye  and the Kyle of Lochalsh hove into sight as you descend the A87 from Invergarry and what could more iconic than Eilean Donan Castle coming into view on the shores of Loch Alsh.

The Skye Bridge has negated the need for a ferry ‘over the sea to Skye’ but the song still rings in your ears as you take the journey over from Kyle of Lochalsh to Kyleakin and on to Broadford, one of the main towns on Skye.

The south of Skye is home to the famous Cuillin hills and across the Cuillin Sound, the Small Isles are clearly visible with Rum the largest of them.

Skye has close links with the Outer Hebrides with ferries leaving to the Western Isles from Uig.

It is also has some of the most stunning scenery in the West Highlands, with what seems like a castle at every turn .

North Skye includes the town of Portree, which features in many a Scottish and Gaelic song, and is just a short hop from the Old Man of Storr and the island of Raasay.
