The Jacobite Steam Train in Scotland is one of the oldest steam trains in the world, it runs in summer between the cities of Fort William and Mallaig in Scotland, for about 70 km, in about 5 hours and 15 minutes.
This railway line which crosses the Scottish moor became especially famous since it was used for the passage of the Hogwarts Express in the films of the Harry Potter saga.


Considered one of the most beautiful train routes in the world, the West Highland Line crosses the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct and offers breathtaking views of sites such as Loch Shiel, Loch Eilt, Ben Nevis and beautiful beaches of Highlands.
