On this Day we checked out of Inverness and headed up to Fort William. We left early and had some wonderful pictures on the way. We had tickets to ride the Jacobite steam train up to Mallaig.
The Jacobite train is an old steam engine that is one of the best ways to see the sights in Scotland. It is a very long and steep grade up to the coastal village. The train was used as inspiration for the Harry Potter movie and we drove over the aquaduct bridge or the Glenfinnan Bridge that was in one of the films. It was hours of nothing but photo ops, lovely country and time to relax. Our destination was a fishing village that we spent an hour and a half in. Just enough time to grab a delicious lunch in a pub and get some pictures. There isn’t much better views than this trip. I think I could spend more time in this rural place. I would highly recommend the train. Some people packed their own lunch so they weren’t stressed in getting lunch in a very small town.
The pictures on the train were taken all through a window in the passenger car so I was pretty happy with the results! After we left Ft. William we drove through Glencoe on the way to our last B and B in Edinburgh for our last few days there. We need to go back and spend more time in this very vast part of the country. So beautiful.
