On Scotland’s far west coast, The Mission Bunkhouse in Mallaig offers simple hostel accommodation right opposite the train station and seconds from the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry terminal. A pretty fishing port in the Highlands, Mallaig has a supermarket, shops and places to eat right outside the building. The Mission Bunkhouse has a shared TV lounge and offers laundry services. There are standard twin bedrooms and single rooms with sinks available. All rooms have shared bathroom facilities with showers, and a communal kitchen with an oven, microwave, kettle and fridge. Bedding is included in the room rate. Towels can be rented. WiFi is available in the communal areas. Downstairs, the privately owned Mission Café serves breakfast from 06:30. A Co-op supermarket is just next door making it easy for guests who prefer to cook for themselves. Trains run directly from Fort William to Mallaig, a journey of around 80 minutes which is regarded as one of the UK’s most scenic rail routes. You can enjoy views of Loch Eilt and Ben Nevis and then sample Mallaig’s freshly caught seafood at its excellent restaurants on your arrival.
