Jacobite Steam Train
The Jacobite Steam Train is described as the greatest railway journey in the world. This 84 mile round trip takes you past a list of impressive extremes.
Starting near the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis, it visits Britain's most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis!
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.
