Glenfinnan | The world-renowned story of Bonnie Prince Charlie 's fight for the British throne gathered momentum at Glenfinnan where he raised the Jacobite standard and rallied his clansmen for battle.
Mallaig | At the end of the ‘Romantic Road to the Isles’ and the West Highland Railway Line lies Mallaig, just over an hour from Fort William. To go further afield, board one of the ferries either to Skye or to the Small Isles of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
Morar | As the Atlantic Ocean rolls in past the Small Isles, its azure shallows tumble on to sparkling white beaches which have long lured photographers and film-makers – none more so than the stretches from Traigh Beach to the silver sands of Morar where 'Local Hero' and 'Highlander' were filmed.
Arisaig | This is the area where the renowned west coast sunset can be enjoyed at its best. There can be no more magical sight than the sun as it disappears behind the islands in a riot of pink, red and purple, setting the mountains of Rum and Skye ablaze with colour.
Lochailort | Loch Ailort cuts its way in from the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The loch, with its clean and sheltered waters was where Scottish fish farming was pioneered. Just a mile further north at Polnish the road passes the old white church which was used in the film 'Local Hero'.
The Small Isles | Unlike many groups each island is distinct and different in geography, agronomy, population and ownership. From Muck in the south, through Eigg with its tooth-like Sgurr, and Rum, mountainous and mysterious in the clouds, to Canna in the north, the Islands offer a wonderful variety of scenery, wildlife and lifestyle.
Knoydart | The Knoydart peninsula is only accessible by boat from Mallaig or by a 20 mile hike on foot. A wonderful area for walking and camping, this is truly a miles-from-anywhere, get-away-from-it-all place. The Old Forge has the accolade of being the most remote pub in mainland Britain

Event | Road to the Isles Agricultural Show

Saturday, 10th June 2017

General

This Agricultural Show focuses on the animals reared in the area bounded by Knoydart, the Small Isles, Mallaig, Morar, Arisaig. Lochailort, Glenfinnan to Drumsallie Bridge and south through Ardnamurchan to Loch Linnhe and Loch Eil.

We try to highlight the interests of all the families concerned with crofting, farming or fishing, so there is a thriving handicrafts marquee exhibiting everything from vegetable animals from nursery school age children through knitting, sewing, painting, sketching, photography and carving to all manner of delicious home baking.

The Pictures in the Gallery are from the 2011 Show.

The Show is held at Camusdarach by kind permission of the Stuart and Orchard families.

To round off the day, there will be a fundraising dance featuring Gunna Sound in Astley Hall. Tickets £10 on the door. Over 18s only. Bar.
