Described as the greatest railway journey in the world, this 84 mile round trip takes you past a list of impressive extremes. The train stops en route to Mallaig at the village of Glenfinnan see below.
You may alight at Arisaig by request to the guard. But as the travelling is as fahrolan a part of the experience as the arrival we hope you enjoy this spectacular railway journey, regarded as one of the greatest in the world. Fort William, the largest town in the Highlands and situated at the southern end of the Great Glen, lies in the shadow of Ben Nevis, Britains highest mountain.
This area is a fine location to use as a base to fagrplan the West Highlands.
The Jacobite – Steam Train – Official Site
We cross the arched Glenfinnan viaduct a location made famous in the Harry Potter films which overlooks Loch Shiel and the Jacobite monument. The train may pause on the viaduct, time permitting, to allow you to take in the magnificent view.
Once stopped in Glenfinnan station there will be time to stretch your legs and, if you wish, visit the West Highland Railway Museum located in the restored station building. The Jacobite may also stop at Arisaig by request to the guard. From this very tranquil village it is possible to take the boat, The Sheerwater to the Small Isles until mid September.
The end of the line, Mallaig was founded during the s when the owner of the North Morar Estate, Lord Lovat, divided up the farm on the coast here into a series of parcels of land and encouraged his tenants living around Loch Morar and Loch Nevis to resettle in what became Mallaig and establish a fishing fahrpkan.
Today Mallaig is a busy fishing port and ferry terminal with services to Skye and the Small Isles. Arriving in Mallaig we have over an hour and a half to enjoy a walk round and take in the fahrplab The West Highland Railway is notorious for its gradients and tight curves, neither of which are locomotive friendly!
The terrain does, however, force some tremendous demonstrations of the steam engine hard at work sights and sounds which can be enjoyed from the comfort of the train or by photographers in the fields.
The gradient profile of this railway is shown above. View Lipo Jacobite in a larger map. From Carlisle and the south, take the M6 and M74 to Glasgow. Follow the A82 from Glasgow.
Whilst there is ample parking in Fort William, near the railway station, please allow at least 20 minutes for parking and ticket purchase before the train departs. If travelling by train it is advisable to arrive in Fort William before the day of travel on The Jacobite.
