Fodor's Review

The most relaxing way to take in the landscape of birch- and bracken-covered wild slopes is by rail. The best ride is on the Jacobite Steam Train, a famously scenic 84-mile round-trip that runs between Fort William and Mallaig. You'll see mountains, lochs, beaches, and islands along the way.
