Once Europe’s most important herring port,
picturesque Mallaig nowadays attracts sea
anglers rather than trawlermen and sits at the
end of both the Road to the Isles and the West
Highland rail line.
Ferries take visitors to nearby islands. Nearby Loch Morar is reputed to be the deepest inland lake in Britain at 1,000 feet. Naturally, it contains a Nessie-style monster.
