Day 2: Glenfinnan

As the train continues west, passing through Fort William, don't miss the views of Ben Nevis. Disembark at Arisaig, for a stroll along the gleaming Morar Sands marvelling at the views of the Isle of Skye's majestic Cuillin Mountains. 

Lunch is served as the train retraces its route back to Fort William, the largest town in the West Highlands. 

After lunch, our Highlander accompanies you to Glenfinnan Monument to explain the area's history before tea at Inverlochy Castle. Energetic guests can choose instead to walk to beautiful Steall Waterfall in Glen Nevis. Return to the train in Fort William and relax on board before an informal dinner is served as you travel south towards the tiny Argyll village of Bridge of Orchy. Afterwards, enjoy a nightcap whilst listening to the evening entertainment in the Observation Car.
