About the tour
Majestic lochs and glens lie in wait as we take in Edinburgh and cross the Highlands, making visits to historic castles and the Isle of Mull. We travel through the West Highlands, tasting local delicacies along the way, culminating in a 'Scottish Evening' in the stately Scottish capital.
We meet at our hotel in Edinburgh. After checking in, you are free to start exploring the city. On Day 2, we board the train to Glasgow. Changing trains, we travel along the famous West Highland Line, passing Loch Lomond and wild Rannoch Moor. Mighty mountains provide an imposing backdrop to our journey as we approach Fort William. On arrival we transfer to our hotel in either Fort William or Ballachulish.

Everybody I dealt with at Great Rails was very knowledgeable and organized. Our experience was exactly as expected.

Extremely well organized, hotels were fantastic, our guide went above and beyond. She was informative, always had a smile on her face
Patricia Ray Nalley
Tour director was good. Accommodations and meals very good.
Mr W Bean
A very good holiday overall, but let down badly on the Jacobite train trip with our group allocated a sub-standard carriage which appeared to have been dragged out of the renovation shed and stuck on the end of the train.
Mrs J Treharne
It was very good....well organized...and enjoyable.
There were several changes in the itinerary. One resulted in a credit back. The other sadly resulted in a coach trip rather than a rail trip. A little more free time.
