Welcome to

Fort William and Lochaber In the shadow of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, Fort William is a natural touring centre. Grand landscapes such as Glencoe, Glen Nevis, Morar and Ardnamurchan make this a rewarding area for scenic tours and outdoor activities. Fort William - Outdoor Capital

The Road - and Railway - to the Isles

Welcome to the Outdoor Capital of the UK. Whether you want to test your nerve on downhill mountain biking tracks, scale peaks, spot iconic wildlife such as eagles or otters, take to the water, or simply admire the breathtaking landscape, it’s all here for you in the Outdoor Capital.

‘The Road to the Isles’ today is the Fort William to Mallaig route via picturesque Glenfinnan, Arisaig, Lochailort and Morar. A rewarding drive, with especially good panoramas of the Small Isles and also spectacular white beaches between Arisaig and Morar, the (steam) train journey is even more worthwhile. Mallaig Heritage Centre tells the story of this ferry and fishing port at the end of the line. Mallaig also has a ferry link to Skye and to the remote community of Inverie in the rugged mountains of Knoydart.

Highest, Deepest Many visitors come to Fort William in order to climb Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, and at 4406ft / 1344m it is a serious day’s walk. Another recordbreaking feature, Loch Morar is the deepest loch in the UK at over 1000ft / 305m and reputedly the home of a monster.

How to use this folder This folder is full of information on the best places to visit in this area. At the front you will find leaflets and information on local attractions, followed by a new section on More Great Things to See & Do and Places to Eat. For information on attractions further afield, have a look at the national map and ‘Things to See and Do in the Rest of Scotland’ listing at the centre of this folder. This is followed by leaflets on other attractions, many of which may be within easy reach of where you are staying.

Almost an Island Ardnamurchan is the peninsula stretching westwards beyond Loch Linnhe, its tip being the most westerly

mainland point in Britain. It is ‘almost an island’, approached by ferry via Corran and the island of Mull, or by winding scenic roads through Ardgour and Moidart. Some features of interest in the area are: Strontian - giving its name to the element strontium - with its old lead mines; the fascinating and ancient Ariundle Oakwood, a national nature reserve; the Nàdurra Visitor Centre; and the Ardnamurchan Lighthouse.

Mountain Spectacle Ben Nevis is only one of many peaks in this dramatic area. Nevis Range mountain centre near Fort William features a gondola ride to 2150ft / 650m on Aonach Mor. These slopes are also the location of Britain’s longest downhill mountain bike track, and site of the 2014 World Cup. Glencoe has not only a spectacular landscape, including Scotland’s narrowest mainland ridge, the Aonach Eagach, but also a grim tale of clan conflict and massacre to add to the ambience. The Mamores, accessible from Kinlochleven or Glen Nevis, and the Grey Corries south of Spean Bridge and stretching away from Ben Nevis, are two more mountain areas.

Great Glen Ways The Caledonian Canal runs coast to coast from Loch

Events...

Linnhe to the Moray Firth. Designed by Thomas Telford, one of the most spectacular examples of his engineering is the series of canal locks at Banavie, near Fort William, known as ‘Neptune’s Staircase’. The linking of natural lochs to man-made canal allows a wide range of cruising and water sport options at various locations. The Great Glen Way can be enjoyed by foot and bike.

Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016 From textiles and technology, to architecture, fashion, and more, this year shines the spotlight on Scotland’s greatest assets, icons, and hidden gems. Discover the richness of the country’s beautiful built heritage, culture and environment, alongside contemporary and cutting edge designs of today.

FAMOUS STEAM TRAIN

FORT WILLIAM TO MALLAIG Monday 9th May to Friday 28th October 2016 The line used in filming the Harry Potter movies.

“The World’s Greatest Railway Journey” Voted By Wanderlust Magazine

THE JOURNEY Fort William to Mallaig Described as the greatest railway journey in the world, this 84 mile round trip takes you past a list of impressive extremes. Starting at the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis, it visits Britain’s most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis!

The train stops en route to Mallaig at the village of Glenfinnan. Beyond Glenfinnan are the beautiful villages of Lochailort, Arisaig, Morar and Mallaig. You may alight at Arisaig by request to the guard. From here, on a clear summer’s day, you can see the “Small Isles” of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna and the southern tip of Skye. The train continues on from here passing Morar and the silvery beaches used in the films “Highlander” and “Local Hero”.

Cruise to the islands of Eigg, Muck & Rum from Arisaig, Eigg:Taken from the Gaelic “Eige” meaning “hollow”. The most noticeable feature on the island is the “Sgurr”, a distinctively shaped

pitchstone which reaches a height of 1290' above sea level. Walking is the main mode of transport on the island, but bikes are available for hire, or you can take a minibus to the other side of the island. Climb the Sgurr, walk along the Singing Sands, or visit the Massacre Cave, there is Plenty to explore. At the head of the pier where we land, there is a center that houses a well stocked shop, Craft Shop & The Galmisdale Tea Room which has stunning views over the water to the Isle of Muck. www.isleofeigg.net

Muck: -who’s name may derive from the Gaelic word for Porpoise “Muc Mara” which were once very common in the bay - lies to the west of Eigg. The smallest of the Small Isles, Muck measures less than two miles long by a mile wide.The island is mostly composed of basalt lava. The most fertile of the Small Isles, Muck has been farmed since the Bronze Age. A Bronze Age burial circle can be found on the west side of the bay at Gallanach. The island is still farmed by the MacEwan family, in whose ownership the island has been since 1895. On Horse Island, which lies just off Muck there is Puffin Colony and these can regularly be seen on the water around the islands . Visitors to Muck are very well looked after and a trip to the island wouldn’t be complete without dropping into the excellent Tea Room / Craft Shop. www.isleofmuck.com Rum: Rum’s name may derive from the Norse Rom oe” meaning wide island, the island measures 8 miles by just over 8 ½ miles. Askival, the highest point of the island, reaches 2,659'. In fact three of the islands peaks exceed 2,500'; Askival,Ainshval and Sgurr nan Gillean. Rum has been in the possession of SNH since 1957 and is mainly used for botanical research & deer studies.

Traigh Golf Course, Arisaig, Inverness-shire, PH39 4NT. Tel: 01687 450 337 info@traighgolf.co.uk www.traighgolf.co.uk


Golf & beach for all the family • Stunning white sandy beaches beside the course • Safe paddling and swimming in shallow bays • The coastal walk to the North passes seven other large white sandy beaches • Camusdarach, the famous “Local Hero” beach, is 1.5 miles north by car or on foot • Ice creams, drinks, snacks and toilets at the clubhouse

The history of golf at Traigh Golf has been played at Traigh since about 1900, but it was originally a private course, only for the use of the owners and their friends! The old layout was very cramped – in fact several fairways crossed over each other. Golfers had to share the ground with dairy cows up until the 1990s, and the cows were kept off the greens with fencing wire. This all changed in 1993 when the owner and golf enthusiast, Jack Shaw Stewart, invited the well-known Scottish golf architect, John Salvesen, to redesign the course. John had been Captain of the Royal and Ancient Golf Course of St. Andrews, and Chairman of the Championship Committee (responsible for The Open). He designed and improved

courses all over Britain and abroad, but he was especially proud of his work on the spectacular nine-hole course at Traigh. John used the natural contours of the hills that rise up from the beach (originally sand dunes) to create "a fair challenge to all levels of golfer – but a course that is great fun to play on, so that one wants to play it again". During the rebuilding of the course invaluable help and advice was provided by Jimmy MacDonald M.B.E, who was Head Greenkeeper at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. Jimmy was a native of Arisaig, and knew the ground well.

Hamish and Jock were having a cup of coffee in the Traigh clubhouse. I’m no’ playing another round with Jimmy McKay”, says Jock, “he’s a cheat. This morning he lost his ball, and he found it just two feet from the green!” “Well, that’s possible,” says Hamish. “No’ when I had his ball in my pocket.”
