We drove two hours to reach Fort William having booked the trip from the U.S. The website would not take my reservation so after repeated tries I ended up having to call yet it all worked out fine. I was a bit surprised that there were no signs for the steam train within the town. It simply leaves out of... More

If you are into Harry Potter and/or steam trains it is quite a spectacular ride and worth the money. If you just want to enjoy the countryside, you are better off taking the normal train, which goes the same route. You should definitely pre-book to be sure to get tickets. Otherwise you need to be there an hour and a... More

Very scenic trip, a must do, many lovely places to visit en route such as Glenfinnan, Morrar, Arisaig, excellent for walking one of the best railway trips in the country taking approximately 1 hour 30 mins

It is an interesting experience riding with a real steam train, you don't have to be a steam train enthusiast or a Harry Potter fan!
