5 Days from £342

 

The Scottish Highlands are an inspiring region of magnificent mountains, enchanting

lochs and sandy beaches. Known as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK, the town

of Fort William lies on the shore of Loch Linnhe in the shadow of Ben Nevis –Britain’s

highest mountain.

 

Very popular with our passengers in recent years, our base in Fort William will

once again be the very comfortable ALEXANDRA HOTEL which is located in the

centre of the town close to all amenities. The hotel features a relaxing lounge,

bar and a restaurant serving fine Scottish cuisine. Naturally, all of the en suite

bedrooms feature tv, telephone, and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all

floors.

 

By popular demand our tour will once again include a ride on the Jacobite

Express. This 84 mile round trip passes Britain’s highest mountain,

deepest loch, shortest river and most westerly station and is reputedly one of

the greatest railway journeys in the world.
