Land, Sea and Islands Centre at Arisaig

A village in South Morar, W Lochaber district, SW Highland Council Area, Arisaig (Gael: Arasaig) lies 7 miles (11 km) south of Mallaig at the head of Loch nan Ceall. Looking out to Skye and the Small Isles, Arisaig lies on the 'Road to the Isles' and was a stopping off place for steamers. In 1901 a station on the West Highland Railway from Fort William to Mallaig was opened, bringing tourists to the area. The 9-hole Traigh golf course lies to the north and there are ferries to the Small Isles in the summer months from here. Arisaig House to the east was built in the 19th Century by Lord Cranston.
