Homecoming Scotland 2014 Arisaig, Inverness-shire local information snippets

Arisaig, Inverness

One of the most picturesque journeys in Scotland is the 40 mile trip from Fort William. You can view and photograph stunning lochs, waterfalls and rivers, ferns and birches, rugged heights and if you research and  divert onto the old type winding roads you will never forget that beautiful journey throughout.

Arisaig is a small "step back in Time ", Scottish village. Arisaig sits at the head of a sandy bay, which looks out across to Eigg and Rum and Muck. 3miles north of Arisaig are the natural and expansive white sands of Morar.

Loch Morar is the deepest Loch not only in Scotland but in Britain. Loch Morar has a depth of 180 fathoms. In 1948 one of the first hydro electric stations was cleverly constructed into the rocks where fast rapids are an invisible border between the Loch and the sea.

7 miles north of Arisaig sits Mallaig which has one of the most picturesque train journeys anywhere, six months advance booking from Fort William is a must do if you want to experience a train journey like no other, the scenery is stunning and includes the train crossing the actual viaduct included in the  Harry Potter films.

Visitors will love their visit to Arisaig and a camera is a must have!
