    Tour Mallaig

    Welcome to Mallaig, a busy fishing and ferry port situated on the west coast of Scotland, opposite the southern tip of the Isle of Skye.

    Tell me a little about a Tour of Mallaig

    The name Mallaig has its origins in Old Norse and translates as ‘seagull bay’. The town has a population of about 1000 and sits at the end of a one-way road and rail link to Fort William, some 43 miles (69 km) away. To travel beyond Mallaig entails use of an extensive ferry service.  Many thousands of visitors pass through Mallaig as a consequence of travelling to/from Armadale on the Isle of Skye  or arriving via the Jacobite Express Steam Train from Fort William which is unofficially known as the ‘Harry Potter Train’.
