Steam Train Trip from Fort William to Mallaig Return

Sustainable Travel

This holiday is part of our ever-growing collection of public transport based holidays, enabling you to reach destinations around Scotland 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 locally-owned small accommodation on this holiday.

Location

This holiday is based just outside the West Highland village of Spean Bridge, and you can choose to travel here by road, or follow the length of the West Highland Rail Line, starting at Glasgow.

Indeed you can also take the Caledonian Sleeper Service from London.

We can arrange train tickets from any UK mainline station as well transfers between the station and hotel.


Pricing

£425 per person in April & October, £455 per person in May to September.

The price is based on two people sharing a double/twin room ensuite for two nights on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis. Included in the price is a first class day return on the Jacobite Steam train. The single supplement for this holiday is an additional £70 per night.

We can also arrange for return rail travel on the West Highland Line from Glasgow to Spean Bridge, and taxi transfers to and from Fort William for the Jacobite, for an additional £100 per person.

You may also choose to stay an extra night at the hotel and explore more of the local area for £130 per person per night, including dinner, bed & breakfast, based on two sharing.

Children sharing a family room start from £150 per child, including children’s tea at the hotel and the return trip on the Jacobite.

Before your departure, you will receive personalised holiday information including full directions, recommended routes, and suggestions on places to visit depending on your interests and our local knowledge to help you get the most from your holiday.
