I won the trip through "Visit Scotland" and travelled on the line on Easter Monday - 1st April 2013. The views are breathtaking! All along the line, which meanders along at a steady pace, the views just improve. Mountains capped with snow, lots of deer...More

Great trip with ever-changing scenery. Snow capped mountains, waterfalls, herons and deer, and Loch Carron views; oh! and a really helpful attendant.

One of my most memorable train journeys. Truly beautiful scenery,enhanced by the stunning rainbows produced by Scotland's notoriously fickle weather. As it was November the train was almost completely empty which added to the enjoyment of the experience.

The scenery on this line is breathtaking! Train slows down around shore at Loch Carron enabling plenty opportunities for photographs.

Very scenic route and always helpful staff on the trains. Not the busiest of lines, so always get a table seat which helps when you have long legs!

This is truly an unmissable journey! Although we experienced the trip in February, we thoroughly appreciated the sheer beauty of this journey. We have travelled this way by car, but the rail journey adds a whole different aspect to the area. Only by rail can...More

The views from the train on the right side for the first 10 mile from Kyle of Lochalsh are out of this world. Having travelled extensively around the world I can only compare with some of the views inland from Vancouver, Canada. After seeing the...More

A fantastic train journey...the scenary especially towards the end of the line at the Kyle of Lochalsh is spectaular. If travelling from Inverness sit on the right-hand side of the carriage. Food and drink are availaible during the journey! A must do!
