How to Find Us
Doune is located on the remote peninsula of Knoydart, on the North West coast of Scotland. We are 4 miles North of the small fishing port of Mallaig, overlooking the Island of Skye. We collect our guests using our own boats (Gripper II and Mary Doune) from the public steps in Mallaig. Please do not get on any other Knoydart boats which might be there as they will be going to Inverie, 6 miles from Doune.
It is quite possible to fly to Glasgow and then train to Mallaig (the station is 100 metres from the harbour). Please be careful about flying to Prestwick Airport as this will add considerably to your transfer times. If flying to Inverness then car hire is the best option to get over to the West, but can be a very good way to include Doune in a tour of the Highlands.
For information on train and rail transport, please use the links on the left for more details. If coming by train, a station change is required in Glasgow (a free bus is provided). In Fort William you just cross the platform to the Mallaig line. Many people enjoy using the excellent London to Fort William sleeper service, however a certain amount of perseverence is needed to book your tickets.
For travel by car, We are approximately 100 miles fom Inverness and 150 miles from Glasgow Airport, however travel times are roughly the same - about 3 hours. All car parking in Mallaig is free and the boat skipper will show you where to park.
Bus services to Fort William are good, but unfortunately unless staying overnight the timetable to Mallaig rarely fits in with our boats.
