The “Road to the Isles” ends at the harbor of Mallaig, with ferries to the Hebrides leaving from this remote and peaceful part of Scotland.

Overlooking the village, this hotel offers rooms with attached bathroom with Freeview TVs. All rooms from Classic upwards rooms boast views of the harbor and islands beyond.

With ample free parking, guests can discover the rugged and unspoiled coastline towards Skye to the south, and there are many hiking routes straight from Mallaig around the neighboring Lochs Morar and Nevis.

A 5-hour direct train journey through some of Scotland’s most picturesque landscapes joins Mallaig to Glasgow.

Our Terrace has now been transformed into a cozy lounge (with breath-taking panoramic views) in which we serve cold local platters, light bites, cakes and scones. For guests that would like a larger meal there are a variety of restaurants within a short walking distance of the hotel.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.2 for a two-person trip.

West Highland Hotel has been welcoming guests since Apr 5, 2012
