Bus and coach operators along the Road to the Isles

Bus service in an around the Road to the Isles

Bus and Coach operators run services to and from Fort William and along the Road to the Isles. We hope to bring you lists of these companies as they register with the Lochaber Directory. CityLink is the operator for scheduled bus services around the Highlands of Scotland, to Skye and Glasgow.  From Fort Wiliam to Mallaig, and in and around the villages and communities along the Road to the Isles, Shiel Buses operate the bus service. Here is a link to Shiel Bus Timetable for Mallaig

This part of the west Highlands is all countryside with low levels of population so don't expect a bus to come along every 15 minutes as they may do in a large city. You need to plan your journeys and fit in with the scheduled bus timetables - unless you want to hire a car or take a tour with a local service provider.

The map below shows where all bus and coach services to and from Fort William arrive and depart.

Everything was of a high standard and the breakfast was something else. The owners couldn't do enough for us and helped us feel at home instantly. Definitely recommended.'  'We have just returned from 3 nights at Distant Hills Guest House and we can’t speak highly enough about our experience and we would recommend it to anybody. The location is stunning, surrounded by beautiful scenery and great walks to be done, and a gentle amble into the village. The rooms are really comfortable and decorated really nicely. Dani and Cam the hosts couldn’t be more welcoming and helpful, and they do a wonderful breakfast! Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are full of great suggestions and ideas of what to do in the area. We will definitely be visiting again!'
