Following Harry Potter's Trail in The Jacobite Express

It was all aboard The Jacobite steam train when we travelled from Fort William to the coastal town of Mallaig.

Passing over the Caledonian Canal at Banavie then along the shores of Loch Eil, the track takes a steady climb to Glenfinnan. Here the train passes over the viaduct made famous in Harry Potter films. The operators of The Jacobite provided the steam engine and carriages for the Hogwarts Express. 

For us the journey was a great way to see the Scotland's deepest loch, Loch Morar, some of the inner Hebridean Islands and the area's natural and untamed beauty. 


  1. Untamed beauty describes it well Rae ... a long way from suburban Perth.

  2. A wonderful photo of the curve. Train travel really is romantic these days!!
