The Old Man of Storr, Skye

The Highlands & Isle of Skye: Rail & Hike

Experience the Scottish Highlands by train and on foot, taking in some of the best scenic rail journeys in the world. Starting from the regal city of Edinburgh, travel deep into the Highlands and across to the Isle of Skye, before returning to vibrant Glasgow. 

Ride the iconic West Highland Line, Jacobite steam train (the ’Hogwarts Express’), and North Highland Line, one of Britain’s most remote and spectacular railways, between Inverness and Kyle of Lochalsh the gateway to Skye. Relax as you speed past brooding lochs, leafy glens and rugged mountains. What’s more, there are some rewarding hikes included, as well as time to explore castles, ancient battlefields, Loch Ness, distilleries and ancient Highland estates. 

Please note only some daily options are mapped using the app so far.
