The Highlands are home to a number of railway journeys that are noted as some of the most spectacular in the world.
The Jacobite Steam Train
For instance, we can take you to Fort William to board the Jacobite Steam Train – perhaps now better known as the “Hogwarts Express” after being used in the Harry Potter films. This journey of 42 miles takes in many spectacular sights including Britain's highest mountain - Ben Nevis - and the Glenfinnan viaduct before terminating in the fishing village of Mallaig.
Once in Mallaig we could continue on via a very short ferry journey to Isle of Skye to explore the many delights that this famous island has to offers.
The Kyle line
This route runs between Kyle of Lochalsh on the west coast to Inverness, the capital of the Highlands.
The route passes through Plockton - this picturesque village was famously used as the location in the TV series Hamish Macbeth as well as in the film The Wickerman.
The journey passes through some spectacular secnery, such Loch Carron which has the Attadale Estate on its shore. It then heads to the fertile east coast via the Glens of Carron and Brahan, where deer roam freely, reaching Inverness via Dingwall and the Beauly Firth.
This steam-powered train journeys from Aviemore to Broomhill. It's route through the Cairngorm National Park allows you to enjoy both the mountain range and the River Spey valley.
If you're a railway enthusiast who'd like to go on all three of these journeys or you'd prefer to pick just one, contact Munro Highland Tours to arrange a trip to suit.
