The prime reason for coming to Fort William was to take the steam train trip from Fort William to Mallaig and back. Before there was a bridge, this was the link to the ferry which departs from Mallaig to the Isle of Skye.
The steam train has gained a degree of notoriety as the Hogwart’s Express in the Harry Potter movies although the train trip is definitely not Harry Potter-themed in any way.

This time we were in the last carriage so I was able to take this shot of the train crossing the Glenfinnan Viaduct which was used in scenes from Harry Potter.
And one final look back at the viaduct as we headed back to Fort William.
I hope you have enjoyed the ride.
