Enjoy a premier experience on the West Highland Line before journeying over the sea to Skye.

Relax and take in the glorious scenery from Glasgow to Fort William along the world-renowned West Highland Line.  Stay in an impressive castle hotel before enjoying the final section in first class style as the Jacobite Express steam train meanders its way from Fort William to Mallaig. From here you take the ferry ‘over the sea to Skye‘ to your hotel with an acclaimed restaurant, then enjoy a full day private tour of the island. Scotland at its best!

Sustainable Travel

This holiday is part of our ever-growing collection of public transport based holidays, enabling you to reach destinations around Scotland – including the Isle of Skye – without the need to drive. We feel strongly that true sustainability also means promoting and helping to maintain a way of life in areas where the economic benefit of tourism can make a genuine difference to the local community, which is why we have used local guides on this holiday.

This twin centre holiday features Fort William and the Isle of Skye. The holiday starts and finishes in Glasgow. We can also customise this to include Edinburgh – less than an hour’s rail journey from Glasgow. We can also arrange travel from London by Caledonian Sleeper in first class or other daytime services.
