A tour we think you'll love
The Fort William to Mallaig rail journey is one of our favourite rail journeys in Scotland. The train travels through some of Scotland’s most picturesque and rugged landscapes, including the Glenfinnan Viaduct, featured in the Harry Potter films. The journey also passes through small towns and villages, allowing passengers to spot wildlife such as deer, eagles and seals. The train terminates at Mallaig, a small fishing village on the coast of the Scottish Highlands, where passengers can explore the local area or take a ferry to the nearby islands.
