Day 42 (May 14): Train to Mallaig

Woke up to much better weather today, which was greatly appreciated!

Today's activity involved another train ride -- this time it's "The Jacobite" steam train from Fort William to Mallaig, a small port town on the far western coast of Scotland.

there were lots of fishing boats in Mallaig

Back to Fort William for the evening.  I took a nice long walk around town before bed.

the town isn't much to look at but it is set in a nice spot
