This small site gives you a flavour of life in Mallaig. The video presentation is very good and should not be missed.

Good little museum. Interesting to see how the town and surrounding area had developed and changed. Lots of maps and photos. We liked the temporary exhibit about the school class at 50. £2.50 entry seems fair.

To be honest, we originally only went in here because it was lashing with rain. The entry cost is very low and children go free. We were surprised how many items were on display and the amount of local information there was. We were staying...More
