Jacobite Steam Train

Following the drive down the Great Glen, we boarded an old steam train for the journey out to Mallaig. Harry Potter and the viaduct aside, we passed through some of the most spectacular and dramatic scenery in Scotland. 

The train stopped in Glenfinnan, presumably to waste time as there was nothing there to see. A short stop on the viaduct to photograph the monument would have made better sense. 

We had just over 90 minutes in Mallaig, which was plenty, especially since the Heritage Centre was closed. We enjoyed a meal of fresh fish, an ice cream and a wander down to the harbour. 

The trip back was direct into Fort William. The steam train trip to Mallaig can now be checked off my bucket list. Another brilliant memory tucked away!
