- Beasdale Railway Station, to the south of Arisaig on the Mallaig Extension Railway (now part of the West Highland Line), was built as a private convenience for a nearby house and saw much use during World War II as the station where SOE agents practised boarding and alighting moving trains (the whole peninsuala area up to Mallaig was used as a training ground for the Executive's "Toughening Schools", where paramilitary skills were taught to potential agents). The station building is now privately owned after recently being restored, but the platform is still in use as a request stop. It is frequented by hikers exploring the surrounding hills and wild coastline. There is a small car park to the rear of the station; this is private property.
The Old Library is a nice lodge and restaurant over looking the Small Isles. They have recently been updating all the rooms in the hotel and have done a really nice job. The restaurant offers nice meals using local produce, though a trip into nearby Mallaig might offer some good / better options.
- B&B Mrs MacDonald 8 Clanranald Place. Just off the main street nice clean B&B and hearty breakfast (+44) 1687 450244
- The very pretty Small Isles are reached by a pedestrian ferry from Arisaig. An excursion to Eigg is a pleasant way to spend a day.
