The Jacobite Steam Train will take you 84 miles along one of the great railway journeys of the world. Starting near the magnificent Ben Nevis in Fort William meandering along beautiful Scottish countryside westerly to the picturesque fishing town of Mallaig where you can see the “Small Isles” of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna and the southern tip of Skye on a clear day and catch a ferry over to some of these islands if you wish to explore further.
At the head of Loch Shiel you will pass Glenfinnan Village with its impressive monument, built in 1815 to mark where “Bonnie Prince Charlie” raised his standard at the start of the 1745 “Jacobite Rising”
You can also feel like Harry Potter as you fly over the infamous Glenfinnan Viaduct used in the recent films.
The train stops at other scenic villages along the way such as Lochailort, Arisaig and Morar with its beautiful white sand beaches.
“The Steamy” as it is affectionally known is a real treat for all ages.
