One of the many reasons we decided to spend most of our Scotland holiday in Fort William was the guidebook's description of the Road to the Isles, the 46-mile road from Fort William to Mallaig, where ferries depart for the Isle of Skye and Small Isles. The top activity listed for Mallaig was Loch Morar, where "a minor road from Morar village, 2.5 miles south of Mallaig, leads to scenic 11-mile-long Loch Morar... the loch and its surrounding hills are the haunt of otters, wildcats, red deer and golden eagles. A 5-mile long, signposted footpath leads along the north shore of the loch from the road-end of Bracorina..." On our second day in Fort William, we cruised along the scenic, winding road towards Mallaig, following trucks loaded with logs heading to the mills along the way. We pulled into Morar Village to get water and then made our way to the end of the long hilly road, parking at the dead-end and setting out on the long long path that ran on the lakeshore then climbing up into the Highland hills. Not another soul the whole way, just us and the herds of sheep.
