Is this a 'must' thing to do? I don't know anything about Harry Potter, which is my understanding why a lot of people take this train. Is taking the Jacobite train worth it taking or can I get the same satisfaction from seeing the scenery while driving around from Edinburgh - Inverness - Fort William, Stirling, etc?
I don't want to spend the time or money if it really doesn't add anything extra to my trip.
Thanks in advance.
