The Jacobite Steam Train is described quite fairly as one of the great rail experiences of the world this is an 84 mile round trip taking you past impressively extreme features!

From the highest mountain in Britain (Ben Nevis), to Britain's most westerly rail station (Arisaig), passing Britain's deepest freshwater loch (Loch Morar) and the shortest river (River Morar), finally arriving by Loch Nevis, the deepest seawater loch in Europe. A decent list of memorable scenery by anyone's standards!

Families may especially enjoy crossing the 21 arches of the Glenfinnan viaduct, which most kids will recognise from the Harry Potter films! Something which will already be in their minds one imagines as the whole thing is delightfully reminiscent of the Hogwarts Express! A thrilling experience guaranteed to capture their imaginations.

There's an hour and a half stopover in Mallaig where you can stretch your legs and enjoy the charming fishing port and it's wealth of family snacking and refreshments options before heading home.

All in all a wonderfully rounded day out which is excellent for children and also one that's easy on the grandparents! Be sure to take a camera for a classic family shot with Fort William Railway Station as a backdrop.
