Glenfinnan, Mallaig & Jacobite Steam Train

To book this tour call us on 0141 887 6777 or online Book Now

A stunning tour from Glasgow that takes us to film locations from movies such as Highlander, Local Hero, Skyfall and Harry Potter. A trip that takes you on a small group tour to the highland’s and on the ‘road to Isles’ to Mallaig . From here, enjoy a one way trip on the Jacobite Steam Train – a two hour train journey that has been described by many, as not only one of the great railway journeys of the world, but also one of the most scenic. The train crosses the Glenfinnan Viaduct, known the world over for its remarkable engineering and more importantly, as the way to Harry Potter’s Hogwarts. 

From Glasgow we follow the full length of Loch Lomond before we make a short stop for coffee at the small village of Tyndrum, which is situated in Strathfillan, at the southern edge of Rannoch moor. The name Tyndrum is derived from the Gaelic term ‘Taigh an Druim’ meaning “the house on the ridge”. From here our route will take us past Loch Tulla and the Black Mount to spectacular Glencoe, a film location used in Skyfall and Harry Potter, it was also the setting to one of the most shameful episodes in Scottish history, the Glencoe Massacre. We will make a stop here to admire the stunning but haunting beauty of the Glen.

In 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard at Glenfinnan in an ill-fated attempt to reinstate the exiled Stuarts on to the throne of Great Britain and Ireland. The Glenfinnan Monument which lies at the head of Loch Shiel was erected in 1815 in tribute to the Jacobites who fought and died for the cause of Prince Charles Edward Stuart. The views and scenery here are simply spectacular.

Loch Eilt was used as a location in a number of Harry Potter films. Hagrid was seen skimming stones across the water and Eilean na Moine, this little island was where Dumbledore was buried. Look out for the Loch Eilt pines – a fine example of the ancient Caledonian pine forest. An essential stopping off point is the Silver Sands of Morar with superb coastline views across a turquoise sea to the Isles of Eigg, Rum and further north to Skye.

On reaching Mallaig your driver-guide will arrange your Jacobite Steam Train tickets and with just under an hour before the train departs, you can enjoy a walk and take in the local atmosphere of this busy little port. There are shops, bars, restaurants and the chance to sample some local fish and chips before boarding the train for this magnificent journey. Your driver-guide will meet you at Fort William where you board the coach that will take us over the desolate wilderness of Rannoch Moor to the Drovers Inn.

For 313 years the Drovers has welcomed the great and the good including the infamous Rob Roy MacGregor. It is said to be “haunted” and there are many tales and sightings of ghouls and ghosts wandering around this ancient Scottish Inn. These days it is the perfect place to enjoy some evening refreshments by a roaring log fire before returning to Glasgow.
