The Jacobite Steam Train - Board the Hogwarts Express
The West Highland Line between Fort William and Mallaig is one of the world’s great railway journeys.
It’s also known for its film role as Harry Potter’s route to school.
The Glenfinnan Railway Viaduct sweeps through some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery. Explore the white-sand coastline between Arisaig and Morar. Spot the small isles of Canna, Eigg, Rùm and Muck from the shore. The fishing port of Mallaig sits along the famous Road to the Isles. Follow the Mallaig Circuit walk to reach the remote Knoydart peninsula – “Britain’s last wilderness”.The West Highland Railway Line was voted Number One in The World by readers of Wanderlust magazine. When you combine this scenic rail journey with a trip on a steam hauled train it’s a real treat! Travel aboard the real Hogwarts Express to see mountains, lochs and, of course, the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct and Bonnie Prince Charlie statue.
