It is regarded as one of the Great Railway Journeys of the World and was voted Top Railway Journey in the World 2009 by Wanderlust Magazine, due mainly to the stunning scenery through which you will be travelling.
The train stops en route to Mallaig at the village of Glenfinnan after crossing the world famous 21 arch concrete viaduct, (as featured in the Harry Potter films) with its stunning views down Loch Shiel and over the place where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his Standard in 1745. The train stops in the station giving you time to stretch your legs and visit the museum in the station buildings.
Arriving in Mallaig we have over an hour and a half to take in the atmosphere of this busy fishing port and ferry terminal. There are shops, bars, restaurants and plenty of fish and chips to be enjoyed during the lunchtime stopover.
You can also get off the train at Mallaig and try to get the ferry to the isle of skye. But be carefull if the wind is blowing from a certain angle you might get stuck in Mallaig or have to head back to Fort William after all. Check the ferry times, and bus times from Armadale to Portree before deciding to go to the other side. Book the train tickets in advance. It can be very busy with loads of elderly people.Website: http://www.westcoastrailways.co.uk/Jacobite_Home.cfm
