“Fantastic day out ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Magical journey and fully enjoyed visit to small fishing village. Proper little day out even though you are only there for 1 hour service is prompt in the restaurants and plenty time to walk around then enjoy any ice cream.

“Brithday Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

The day we traveled was totally windless, snow on the mountains mixed with atmospheric mists created spectacular views through out the journey. And the mirror like reflections in the mill pond lochs was truly unforgettable.

“Wonderful respite from the bustle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

What a wonderful idea! The Highline provides a wonderful respite from the busy lower west side of the city. So good to see a city with the foresight to make a new natural attraction from an existing but outdated infrastructure. It would have been so easy to just demolish the old rail line, but with the passion of locals, this has been made into a lovely natural garden weaving across the busy city. Highly recommend the Highline!

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Evan through the rain the scenery was amazing. Trip worth doing if staying in Fort William and you have a day spare. On e at Mallaig do the circular walk, not a lot else to do and walk only added to our trip.

“Fantastic trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We went from Glasgow Queen St Station to Fort William which took about 4 hours . The views where stunning when you got out of Glasgow, especially on the elevated sections of line and going over Rannoch Moor was a revelation. Railtrack are now renewing a lot of the track making it a a lot more gentle journey. The mountain tops where coated in snow adding to the atmosphere.
