Whestrail Highlander Steam Service from
Central Scotland to Fort William


WhestRail is the new organisation linking Rail Travel to Tourism along the world famous West Highland Railway in Scotland. For two consecutive years Wanderlust Magazine readers voted The West Highland Line as the Worlds Most Scenic Train Journey. We now also await the decision by readers of the Lonely Planet Guides who may also award this accolade.

Long before these prestigious awards, millions of visitors had travelled the lines which at times leaves even the most experienced traveller speechless with their contrasts of wild rugged mountains and moors to rushing streams and tranquil lochs and sea.

To those of you who are budding photographers the scenes are endless and you may even experience the opportunity of all Four Seasons in one day as you travel to your destination at a leisurely pace.

Hop on and explore with the WhestRail Highlander. You can leave the 21st Century behind in Edinburgh or Glasgow and travel through an unspoilt world to The West Highlands along a rail corridor which has a new fascination and mystery around every bend.

You might need to lease a large vehicle if travelling with a group or family so in that case perhaps you should use people carrier hire and find the best possible deal. There are plenty of 7 seater car hire Glasgow options if you are arriving in Glasgow and driving to the West Highlands.
