Fishing Boats in Mallaig Harbour

A view of several fishing boats moored at Mallaig Harbour, in Mallaig, Lochaber. Mallaig was once a major herring port. Today it is the pre-eminent fishing port on the west coast of Scotland, whose fishing fleet lands Europe's largest catch of prawns. The village is also an important terminal for ferries to Skye and the Small Isles.
