Sunday 19 May. The weather forecast for yesterday wasn’t that great (strong winds and rain) so Saturday was a rest day. Today, it was much better so we caught the 12:12 train to Mallaig for a 90 minute ride through the mountains and lochs. The return train departed at 16:05 so we had just 2½ hours in which to squeeze a walk. We managed 4 miles with 725ft of ascent which took us on a circular route in the nearby hills and to the shore of Loch an Nostarie.
Mallaig is at the end of “The road to the Isles” and offers views across to Skye, Run and Eigg.
