Rail Journeys in Scotland

Strathspey Railway

Train journeys in Scotland are a magical experience. With its dense forestry, spectacular mountain views, and peaceful lochs, the Scottish landscape is one of the most beautiful in the world. So whether you’re looking for a holiday escape or simply want to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Scotland, travelling by train is one of the best ways to do it. With incredible views, luxurious accommodations, and friendly staff, train journeys in Scotland are something you won’t soon forget.

First, consider the sheer convenience of travelling by train in Scotland. Numerous routes available will take you from one part of the country to the other. For example, you can take the train from Glasgow or Edinburgh down to picturesque Loch Lomond, enjoy the tranquillity of the Highlands from Fort William to Mallaig, take a breathtaking coastal route from Aberdeen to Wick, or journey through the stunning Trossachs National Park from Glasgow to Oban. The options are endless.

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.
