Mallaig, Glenfinnan and Arisaig

The Road to the Isles extends northwest from Fort William to end at the fishing port of Mallaig. This is one of Scotland's most scenic routes, with both road and the famous West Highland railway running through a region of rugged grandeur.

The main villages along the way are Glenfinnan where a great monument commemorates Bonnie Prince Charlie's uprising in a setting of incomparable scenic beauty. Further on the great mountains give way to an equally stunning coastline around Arisaig and beyond. The White Sands of Morar featured in the film Local Hero and are yet another draw to this spectacular region.
