As a break from driving, why not take one of the most scenic railway journeys in the world? The West Highland Line from Fort William to Mallaig is the ideal way to enjoy the spectacular scenery along the Road to the Isles which abounds with stories of Bonnie Prince Charlie. During the summer The Jacobite steam train operates from mid-June to mid-September Monday to Friday and some Sundays during the height of the season. Ordinary trains operate daily throughout the year.

The photogenic ruins of Castle Tioram lie 2 hours drive to the south of Fort William, while picturesque Eilean Donan Castle is 2 hours to the north near Skye.
