The Jacobite Steam Train
Jump aboard the Jacobite Steam Train and immerse yourself in breath-taking Highland scenery. While experiencing 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 then capture the iconic vista of the Glenfinnan Monument. This is the historic location where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard in 1745. It was 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 Glenfinnan, Mallaig and Jacobite Steam Train tour departing from Glasgow. The two-hour train journey takes you from Mallaig to the Highland holiday resort of Fort William.
We also offer a private tour option for those looking for a more bespoke experience. You may wish to add to your tour and take a return journey on the Jacobite Steam Train. This would mean taking a 2 day tour with an overnight stay before returning to the lowlands. Alternatively, you could choose to personalise the stops on route to the train instead. The choice is yours.
