Jacobite Steam Train

Starting near the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis, it crosses over the famous 14 arched Glenfinnan viaduct, visits Britain's most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar, the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis!

The train stops en route to Mallaig at the village of Glenfinnan. Beyond Glenfinnan are the beautiful villages of Lochailort, Arisaig, Morar and Mallaig. You may alight at Arisaig by request to the guard. From here, on a clear summer's day, you can see the "Small Isles" of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna and the southern tip of Skye. The train continues on from here passing Morar and the silvery beaches used in the films "Highlander" and "Local Hero".

Jacobite Steam Train journeys can be incorporated into most of our standard tour itineraries during the summer months.

My husband and I took the 9 Day Highlands and Islands Tour with John, as our amazing driver/guide, and we had the best time of our lives! We were able to fully relax, enjoy, and have fun! Best Scottish Tours exceeded our expectations and there aren't adequate words to express our appreciation of Jennifer and John for making this a trip of a lifetime for us! ”
