Jacobite Steam Train
The section of West Highland Line is considered to be one of the most scenic Railways of the World - the scenery along the line is STUNNING. In the summer months a steam locomotive train operator provides a superb excursion from Fort William to Mallaig, with Scotrail's service operating concurrently with diesel Sprinter Trains.

Fort William's railway station is a nice building with toilet and locker facilities, a bright and bustling waiting room/ticket office and newsagent kiosk.
