Full description
Start the day early as you depart Inverness by coach and drive along the banks of Loch Ness while keeping a look out for Nessie. There will be a quick photo stop in the hope you just might catch a glimpse of her. Stop next at the Commando Memorial, constructed to honor the Commando Forces from WWII. As you near Fort William, you might be able to see the peak of Ben Nevis through the clouds, the highest mountain in the UK.

Onto the Glenfinnan Viaduct and perhaps a glimpse of the train passing over this stunning viewpoint. Follow the coastal road to Mallaig where there will be a stop for lunch before the tour highlight: the Jacobite steam train — or as Harry Potter fans will know it, the Hogwarts Express. The journey takes you past the deepest loch, shortest river, and the most westerly station.

Leaving the train at Fort William you’ll head along the Laggan Road to Aviemore for your final stop of the day before returning to Inverness.
