If you are a Harry Potter fan and you arrive in UK, you should not miss this opportunity of taking a train ride from The West Highland Line between Fort William and Mallaig which is one of the world’s great railway journeys.
The Glenfinnan Railway Viaduct sweeps through some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery. Explore the white-sand coastline between Arisaig and Morar. Spot the small isles of Canna, Eigg, Rùm and Muck from the shore. The fishing port of Mallaig sits along the famous Road to the Isles. Follow the Mallaig Circuit walk to reach the remote Knoydart peninsula – “Britain’s last wilderness”.The West Highland Railway Line was voted Number One in The World by readers of Wanderlust magazine. When you combine this scenic rail journey with a trip on a steam hauled train it’s a real treat! Travel aboard the real Hogwarts Express to see mountains, lochs and, of course, the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct and Bonnie Prince Charlie statue.
Enjoy a truly magical experience aboard the real-life Hogwarts Express. Puffing past lush scenery, you’ll recognise many landmarks from the Harry Potter films, including Loch Shiel, AKA the Dark Lake, and Dumbledore’s final resting place at the isle of Eilan na Moine. Best of all is the dramatic crossing of Glenfinnan Viaduct, as you traverse its 21 giant arches.
