The Jacobite Steam Train

Jump aboard the Jacobite Steam Train and be immersed in breath-taking Highland scenery on one of the world’s greatest train journeys. The railway line curves over the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct, now immortalised in Harry Potter films as the route to Hogwarts.

You’ll travel through the heart of Scotland’s wild west coast and get up close to majestic mountains and sparkling lochs. At the head of Loch Shiel you’ll capture the iconic vista of the Glenfinnan Monument. This is the historic location where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard in 1745 in a passionate but ill-fated attempt to restore the exiled Stuarts to the Great Britain and Ireland throne. The monument, crowned with a lone piper, stands in silent tribute to the clansmen who died fighting the Jacobite cause.

You can enjoy a one-way train journey over the ‘Harry Potter Bridge’ on our three and four day tours to the Isle of Skye, the Highlands and Loch Ness that depart from both Glasgow and Edinburgh. The two-hour journey takes you from the Highland holiday resort of Fort William to Mallaig where we continue our journey by ferry over the sea to the Isle of Skye.

On our one day Glenfinnan, Mallaig and Jacobite Steam Train tour departing from Glasgow you can opt to take the train from Mallaig back to Fort William where your small group tour continues south by mini coach.
