Travelling By Car

The village of Morar is about 30 miles west of Fort William, the “Outdoor Capital” of the UK.

Just north of the town, turn west on the A830 “Road to the Isles”, signposted to Mallaig. The route will take you along the shores of Loch Eil, through the village of Glenfinnan and on to the coast beyond Lochailort.

About 3 miles after passing through the village of Arisaig, turn right and follow the minor road that takes you past the falls of Morar and over the railway crossing into the village. Sunset is the 3rd house on the left after the hotel.

Travelling By Train

The railway journey from Fort William to Morar and Mallaig has been consistently voted the most beautiful rail journey in the world (by the readers of “Wanderlust” magazine) and is one of BBC's 10 Great Railway Journeys of the World.

Four regular “sprinter” trains a day, along with 2 steam hauled excursions (April till October) make their way from Fort William station to Mallaig, sometimes following the road route and at times diverging into the hills on a path of its own through wild and varied scenery.

Morar is the last stop before the end of the line and Sunset is 100 yards down the hill from the station, the 3rd house on the left after the hotel.

Travelling By Bus

Shiel Buses operate a regular service between the towns of Fort William and Mallaig. The bus station in Fort William is adjacent to the railway station at the northern end of the town and the journey to the west coast will take about 45 minutes.

The village of Morar is the last stop before the service terminates in Mallaig. The bus will let you off outside Morar railway station and Sunset is about 100 yards down the hill on the left hand side, the 3rd house past the hotel.

Many long distance and coach services also travel the route to Mallaig and the ferry to Skye and will let you alight at the bottom of Morar village, just a few minutes walk from Sunset.

Shank's Pony

A lesser travelled but infinitely rewarding way to reach Morar is under your own power, on foot. The route will take you through some of the remotest and wildest landscapes in Europe, via Loch Arkaig, Glendessary and along the shores of Loch Nevis to Tarbert and Morar. To arrive in Morar by this route will certainly give you an appetite!
