Jacobite Steam Train, Fort William

4.0
Travel on the same train Harry Potter boarded for Hogwarts on Jacobite Steam Train. The train runs 25.5 km (41 mi), passing through gorgeous landscapes alongside Loch Eil, Glenfinnan Viaduct, and Arisaig. The route was opened exclusively for visitors wishing to view the scenery in the region. Prior to the train, the area was almost inaccessible to tourists. Pulled by a steam locomotive, the train whistles through the Scottish countryside daily, with trains departing from Mallaig and Fort Williams.
