Board the famous Jacobite Steam Train

Depart Edinburgh in the morning and journey north towards the Highlands, past the magnificent Forth Bridge, and through Fife and Perth on this day's tour. Feast your eyes upon the Glenfinnan Viaduct on the stunning drive up the west coast of Scotland. The next time you see it will be when you're travelling across its iconic arches on the Jacobite Steam Train from Mallaig!

This tour combines beautiful scenery, travel and legendary Scottish folklore. This iconic steam train has been operating every summer since 1984, playing a vital role in preserving the scenic West Highland line. This line stretches 41 miles between Fort William and Mallaig, passing through an area of unrivalled scenic beauty. Eagle-eyed travellers will recognise the route as the one used in the Harry Potter movies.

From the train, you will also glimpse Loch Eil -the historical town which shared its name was home to Jacobite chieftain Donald Cameron. You will also pass by the stunning white sand beach at Arisaig, which was used as a filming location in the 1983 film Local Hero.

After your experience on one of the world's most beautiful railway lines, you'll be whisked through the dramatic landscape of Glencoe, used as the backdrop for some much-loved scenes in the Harry Potter movie series. Then, continuing through the vast wilderness of Rannoch Moor, with a guide regaling tales from Scotland's past, you'll arrive back in the city in the late evening.

This trip combining the world of film with historic local folklore and beautiful scenery will make for a memorable day well spent in the Scottish Highlands!
