Mallaig Overview

Mallaig is a port in Lochaber, on the west coast of the Highlands of Scotland. The local railway station, Mallaig, is the terminus of the West Highland railway line (Fort William & Mallaig branch), completed in 1901, and the town is linked to Fort William by the A830 road – the "Road to the Isles".

Mallaig and the surrounding area is a popular area for holidays, with an abundance of outdoor activities, and a friendly and welcoming population.

The Mallaig railway is used during the filming of the Harry Potter series of films, and the Hogwarts Express can be seen during periods of filming during the summer months. Many other local areas are used for location filming too.
