Our Story

The Chlachain Inn (translated as 'stone house') was built around 1900, and has since then been a popular haunt of the local population. Since it's major refurbishment in 2004, the Chlachain Inn offers something new to the area - a modern, clean and bright venue for all to enjoy. 

Mallaig is a working fishing village, with all the amenities of a town thrown into the mix. The population size is a friendly 1200 – many of whom you’ll meet working in the shops and restaurants, our own included! 

Much of the country’s best sea food is landed here, and includes the renowned Mallaig haddock, along with succulent prawns, mussels, and fresh scallops. All of these are available to savour & enjoy in our very own restaurant, which is open 7 days a week, all day.

Mallaig is also the ferry terminal for Caledonian MacBrayne (Calmac) services to the Isle of Skye, and the small islands of Eigg, Rum, Canna and Muck. There is also a privately operated service to Inverie (Knoydart) and Tarbet with a scenic journey which lasts approximately 45 minutes.


Car Parking

While we don't have our own private car park, there is plenty of convenient & safe street parking nearby, with daytime restrictions.
