Visit the beaches where Local Hero was filmed while staying at Sheenas Backpackers
A visit to Sheenas Backpackers in Mallaig is a must for everyone who loved the scenery and local culture in the film Local Hero. Morar beach and Camusdarrach beach, close to Mallaig, were used in this classic film. If your fired up about Marine conservation then Mallaig has a Marine World where you can find out more about the wild life on this coastline. Another tick for those gathering classic memories it to follow in Bonnie Price Charlies footsteps and take the ferry Over the Sea to Skye. The ferry leaves from Mallaig on a daily basis (check for winter timetables) and give some tremendous views of the west cost scenery and opportunities to spot the local wildlife on the voyage. Other boats from Mallaig include Whale watching trips and boats to the remote Knoydart peninsula and the smaller inner Hebrides islands of Rum and Eigg. For further information of the locality have a look at the website Road to the Isles.
