All aboard for a nostalgic steam locomotive ride on this evocative tour as we discover the remarkable beauty of Scotland’s west coast. Regarded as one of great train journeys of the world, the thundering Jacobite Steam Train puffs its way through breathtaking countryside, past sleepy villages and rumbles over the multi-arched Glenfinnan Viaduct – a landmark many of you will know from the smash hit Harry Potter movies. On another day we visit colourful Fort Augustus, an old world village with the Caledonian Canal flowing through its centre, busy with boats of all types and sizes.
Jacobite Steam Train to Mallaig
We board the Jacobite Steam Train for our evocative journey across the multi-arched Glenfinnan Viaduct. Arriving in Mallaig, you might like to explore the visitor centre or simply enjoy the stunning views from the harbour.
Fort Augustus & Fort William
Perhaps pop into Fort Augustus Caledonian Canal Visitor Centre, take a short cruise on Loch Ness or head to The Clansman Centre and learn about Highland life in bygone days from guides wearing traditional costumes. We proceed to Fort William, a favourite location for the makers of movies such as Braveheart, Harry Potter and Highlander.
Glencoe & Oban
We visit the village of Glencoe, a charming settlement tucked away amidst stunning scenery. From here we travel to the harbour town of Oban where you’ll find a level esplanade, whisky distillery and woollen mills.
Nestling in the picturesque Highlands near the banks of Loch Linnhe, the enchanting Croit Anna Hotel offers gorgeous views and has a relaxing lounge bar with pool table.
