If you’re in Fort William and have the time to take the 40 mile drive to Mallaig, this isn’t to be missed. Breathtaking views of lochs, mountains and the coastline await. Great driving road too. Also worth taking the scenic coastal detour for some untouched...More

A beautiful drive, but look out. The mt roads are very narrow, and some of the trucks are very large. I never purchase car insurance....but did here on the recommendations of several friends.

This is a really nice drive with plenty of scenery demanding a few stops for a photo or two. Unless you're heading to the Skye Ferry it's a return trip back to Fort William of about 1 hr 30mins - 2 hrs.

We rode this on the motorcycle after taking the ferry from Armadale. It's nothing short of mind blowing! The colours of the scenery and constantly changing landscape make it a must do and comparable to the Antrim coast drive in Northern Ireland

A stunning drive with fabulous dramatic scenery. One of my favourite drives in Scotland. With beautiful beaches and fantastic mountain views. A memorable experience, that always brings a smile of amazement. Definitely a must do.

A sunny morning before lunch, followed by rain in the afternoon, this drive was absolutely stunning. The scenery, mountains and lakes, was really great - so glad we took the time to visit. Would like to come back here some day.
