Follow in the footsteps of Bonnie Prince Charlie and enjoy stunning seascapes


This full day tour follows the route of the ancient drove roads to the fishing port of Mallaig. The route offers countless wonderful photo opportunities of mountain views and seascapes in abundance. And being in the company of a knowledgeable local guide you'll be able to find those little known places that the guide books don't tell you about.

We'll reach Mallaig in time for lunch and have an opportunity to try the freshly caught local seafood (fish and chips recommended) before heading back to Fort William via the coastal route. On the way home, we'll take a stroll of about 3 miles to a fabulous remote beach with views out to the small isles. On the way we'll look for otters, seals and deer amongst other wildlife and binoculars are available to give you close up views.

I will also introduce you to the local flora with tales of the various species place in the diet, medicine, and folklore of the people that lived in these places in bygone times and give you an insight into the agriculture of the time
