Street scenes and pictures of Mallaig
Mallaig is a port in Lochaber, on the west coast of the Highlands of Scotland. The railway station is the terminus of the West Highland railway line completed in 1901, and the town is linked to Fort William by the A830 road – the "Road to the Isles".
Mallaig has grown hugely since the railway arrived. Ferries operated by Caledonian MacBrayne and Bruce Watt Sea Cruises sail from the port to Armadale on the Isle of Skye, Inverie in Knoydart, and to the isles of Rùm, Eigg, Muck, and Canna. Mallaig is the main commercial fishing port on the west coast of Scotland, and was once the main herring port of Europe, famed for traditional smoked kippers.
Mallaig and the surrounding islands and villages are popular for holidays, with plenty of outdoor activities like sailing, walking, and fishing, and a friendly and hospitable population.
