Great walk, well maintained!! I am not a hill walker as I have a balance problem, but I managed this quite easily. Like with all walks though, better when it's dry!! It's stunning once you get into the glen - so quiet and picturesque. I...More

This was a well signposted walk up over the top of the hill. It wasn't far but we did have a train to catch. A hilly walk but good footing. I am not a great walker but to heart problems but the was very doable....More

Although it was windy and wet, the views were stunning! It felt like we were on another planet. Signage was OK too.

This is a very good walk for a dog! You leave Mallaig by a small path which takes you into the hills and eventually to a small loch and then back into Mallaig through farmland. I actually saw a wild cat!

The start of this walk is opposite the harbour. There is a sign on the steps pointing the way. The first part leads up towards the Glen. Dont forget to look back and admire the view of the harbour! The whole walk is clearly signposted....More

This sounded a bit more interesting than it was in reality. Fairly steep beginning followed by a rocky and uneven trail. You are immersed in a valley and get the idea of how difficult farming would be.

We had a couple of hours to spare before the train left and found this walk. Lovely views from the top and an escape into the countryside.

Walk starts just outside Mallaig and climbs to give views across to the islands. Easy walking takes around an hour; there are several benches if you need to rest.

Easy stroll taking in some spectacular views on a clear day. Only discovered it by chance, noticed a home made sign pointing us in the right direction.

While visiting Mallaig with my son we walked around the town following the recommended route - while making our own diversions! - and found it a very interesting and attractive place to visit whether around the port area or higher up offering views across the...More
