Described as one of the great railway journeys of the world this 84 mile round trip takes you past a list of impressive sites and scenes. Starting at Fort William, 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 Mallaig
The train stops en route to Mallaig at the village of Glenfinnan. Beyond Glenfinnan are the beautiful villages of Lochailort, Arisaig, Morar and Mallaig. From here, on a clear summer’s day, you can see the “Small Isles” of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna and the southern tip of Skye. The train continues on from here passing Morar and the silvery beaches used in the films “Highlander” and “Local Hero”.
This visitor attraction does provide visitors to the area with an opportunity to see some of the region's most stunning scenery which, in some cases, can only be seen from the train as it passes through some glens not accessible by car.
For a great family day out why not consider a day on the Jacobite.
