Food & Drinks

Some of Scotland's best and freshest fish and seafood

Mallaig offers a range of possibilities for eating out, and unsurprisingly, many of the restaurants in town have a strong emphasis on seafood. Choose between formal dining in a harbourside restaurant, or just grab a fish and chips takeaway and eat it al fresco or take it back to your Mallaig accommodation for a relaxing evening in.

There are a couple of small supermarkets and convenience stores in town for those who are self-catering, and fish merchants on the quayside are more than happy to sell smaller quantities of fish, prawns, crab, or lobster for cooking at home. Arisaig hosts a monthly local produce market, which is the perfect place to pick up jam, chutney, pies, and delicious home baking.

Family Activities

Some of Scotland's best beaches close to Mallaig

Head south from Mallaig, and in a couple of kilometres, you'll see a sign for the Silver Sands, one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in Scotland. This beach joins onto Camusdarach Beach, made famous in the 1980s by the Hollywood movie, Local Hero. Whatever the time of year, the beach is spectacular in its beauty with powdery white sand dunes, crystal-clear waters, and magnificent vistas. If you visit outside of peak summer season, chances are that you'll have the beach to yourself.

Carrying on further south from Camusdarach leads to several other small beaches that may not have its fame, but have the same white sands and clear water. Even further south, the beaches become rockier and there are several rock pools to explore at low tide.

Local Attractions

Over the sea to Skye

Ferries leave regularly from Mallaig across the Sound of Sleat to Armadale, on the Isle of Skye. If travelling as a foot passenger, head north from the ferry terminal to the interesting Armadale Castle & Gardens and Museum of the Isles. Stroll along a woodland walk, relax in the formal gardens, or just have a cup of tea in the café. If you book a slot for your car on the ferry, you can venture further onto Skye, perhaps taking in the scenery in the north of the island or Dunvegan Castle.

If you'd prefer to get out on the water in a different way, why not take a wildlife cruise from Mallaig instead? The waters around Scotland's west coast are rich with marine life, and you can expect to see birds, seals, porpoises, dolphins, and perhaps even whales and basking sharks, depending on the time of year.
