Description: The Jacobite Steam Train Railway Track, "The Railway to the Isles", is described as one of the great railway journeys of the world. This 41.3 miles (66,5 kilometers) long track takes you past a list of impressive sites. Starting in Fort William near the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis, it visits Britain's most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving at Mallaig next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis.

The train crosses the 21-arched Glenfinnan viaduct, a location made famous when travelling with the Hogwarts Express in several Harry Potter films. The train stops on the route to Mallaig at the village of Glenfinnan which overlooks Loch Shiel and The Glenfinnan Monument, The Jacobite. Next stop is Arisaig. From here, on a clear summer's day, you can see the "Small Isles" of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna and the southern tip of Skye. The train continues on from here passing Morar and the silvery beaches used in the films "Highlander" and "Local Hero".

Tour creator: Tom Kjeldsen, created july 2011. Path of the track is avaiable, one at ground level showing the railway direction, a second above level suitable for playing the path. Recommended to be viewed as a 'Play tour' in Google Earth with terrain feature and '3D buildings' layer enabled.
