Station Hotel, Mallaig

This postcard shows the Station Hotel in Mallaig, now known as The West Highland Hotel.

The hotel was built in the early 20th century, to coincide with the coming of the railway. The well known West Highland Line runs from Fort William to Mallaig. In 1927 the hotel was destroyed by fire and had to be completely rebuilt, after which it was renamed The West Highland Hotel.

In 1999, the hotel played host to the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, when she came to Mallaig to open the new harbour extension
