West Coast Railways is the UK’s leading special trains operator and The Jacobite will take you on what is regarded as one of the greatest railway journeys of the world. Starting near Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, it visits the country’s most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig, and passes its deepest freshwater loch. It’s the route of Hogwart’s Express and you’ll enjoy views of the silvery beaches used in the films Local Hero and Highlander. Trips start in mid May.
