Local Area & Things to Do

Visit the Knoydart Peninsular


The perfect day out………..

Travel from Mallaig to Inverie on the Western Isles leaving Mallaig at 10.30am. Have a wander around Inverie then rejoin the Western Isles at 3pm from Inverie for a cruise up Loch Nevis to Tarbet arriving back in Mallaig at about 5pm. The Western Isles has a bar and toilet onboard.


If you want to spend more time on Knoydart, the Western Isles calls back at Inverie at 4.15pm before arriving back in Mallaig at about 5pm. Or book the last boat back at around 6.30pm.


For the more energetic, walk from Bracara  through 6.5 miles of remote and rugged scenery along the north shore of Loch Morar to Tarbet on Loch Nevis. The Western Isles will pick you up at Tarbet at 3.30pm and cruise back to Mallaig for 5pm.


Alternatively, stop off at Inverie for a pint on the way back at The Old Forge, mainland Britains remotest pub ( arr inverie 4.15pm) and catch the 6.30pm boat back to Mallaig (please book this ferry in advance) The Old Forge is closed during the winter months and closed Wednesday during the season, it's wise to check ahead to avoid disappointment.


If you just fancy a walk, catch the 2.30pm boat from Mallaig, get off at Tarbet at 3.30pm and walk back to Bracara along the lochside.


We can often provide a lift to or from Mallaig by arrangement.
