Readers of Wanderlust travel magazine regularly vote for the West Highland Line as the best railway journey in the world. We created this unique holiday so that you can relax and take in the glorious scenery from Glasgow to Fort William, before enjoying the final section in first class style as the steam train meanders its way from Fort William to Mallaig. But that’s not your final destination: from here you take the ferry ‘over the sea to Skye’ to a beautiful, cosy hotel in a tiny village with stunning coastal views and excellent local walks.
