DAY 2

After breakfast our local coach takes us the short distance to the Nevis Gondola cable car, which whisks us high up the mountain for incredible views. Back in Fort William, we visit the Ben Nevis Distillery for a tour and a warming 'wee dram' before we take lunch in the hotel. Your afternoon is free to explore Fort William a little, with its dramatic backdrop of Ben Nevis.

DAY 3

Today we pick up our packed lunches from the hotel and rejoin the West Highland Line for the final part of the epic journey to Mallaig. Trundling first past the Caledonian Canal's locks, we head through rocky mountain landscapes, crossing Glenfinnan Viaduct, where Bonnie Prince Charlie's monument and Loch Shiel are viewed before bursting out onto the Atlantic coastline of golden white sands with distant views of Rhum and Eigg. Enjoy time in Mallaig with views across the sea to Skye before returning to Fort William.

DAY 4

A truly stunning coach journey heads into the Great Glen, driving alongside Loch Ness en route to Dingwall. Here we join the original 'Great Railway Journey of the World' made famous from Michael Palin's trailblazing programme - The Kyle Line. Tuck into your picnic lunch as our train climbs past great forests, stopping briefly in small hamlets, before descending through lochs and stunning seascape scenery to Kyle of Lochalsh, overlooking the Isle of Skye. Our circular tour is then completed by coach, heading south through the western Highlands to Fort William for our final evening meal.

B, PL, D

DAY 5

The hotel provides one final packed lunch today, as we bid farewell to Fort William. If travelling by train today you will see the section of the West Highland Line in wintry daylight glory, climbing high across the heather of Rannoch Moor, whose splendid isolation can only be experienced by train or on foot (no road leads here), before skirting Lochs Lomond, Long and Gareloch en route to Glasgow, from where we disperse to your home stations.
