#1 of 3 hotels in Mallaig
The West Highland Hotel is located in the fishing village of Mallaig on the West Coast of Scotland and is just a 5 minute walk from the railway station and ferry port. It enjoys the most amazing views over the islands of Skye, Rum and Eigg and is the perfect location to enjoy a restful holiday away from it all.

Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry you were disappointed with our breakfast times. For people going on the early ferries we offer a full packed breakfast that they can enjoy on the boat (cold) - including coffee/tea to take away. If you book directly and notify us in advance we can also arrange for a hot breakfast roll of your choice to take away. I hope you will join us again in the future.

A friend and I stayed here when we did the 1/2 marathon in the Road to the Isles Festival of Running. Fantastic event and fantastic place to stay! Sine and Gavin and their staff looked after us incredibly well and we'll definitely be back to spend more time here. Amazing
