Part of the fun is getting here...

By Car

Take the A830 “Road to the Isles” from Fort William. Best to allow yourself 1 to 1½ hours from Fort William to Mallaig. 3½ to 4 hours if traveling from Glasgow to Fort William the same from Edinburgh to Fort William or 2 to 2½ hours from Inverness to Fort William. Harry Potter fans will be delighted by the viaduct bridge made famous on the Hogwarts Express/flying car chase is Just after the Glenfinnan monument. You’ll also pass the white sands of Morar, made famous as the beach locations for Local hero with Burt Lancaster.
