The West Highland Hotel is situated in a prominent, elevated position in Mallaig, at the end of The Road to The Isles, being only a short walk away from the railway station and the ferry port with regular sailings to the Isle of Skye and The Small Isles. The hotel retains the traditional charm of an age gone but with comfortable modern en-suite rooms. The West Highland Hotel offers a choice of dining experiences including the stylish Island View Restauarant, The Longe, The West Bar and Conservatory with panoramic views out to the Islands.
An enjoyable walk following a gravelled track with good views of the hill lochan, Loch nan Lochan, and ascending to the reservoir at Glen Forslan. Fine hill scenery and the picturesque falls of Glenforslan make this a very pleasant walk. In addition, devil's bit scabious (Succisa patensis), scotch argus (Erebai aethiops) and orange peel fungus (Aleuria aurantia) are abundant in late summer. Some steep ascents and can be boggy in places. This is a 'there and back' walk.
Please refer to local walking guides for details.
