The drive from Inverness south to Fort William was picturesque. This is a large dam where we stopped to take in the view of the mountains at Loch Laggan.
The real highlight however was a train trip we took from Fort William to Mallaig (on the western coast of Scotland). You may recognise the train from Harry Potter. It travels over the Glenfinnan viaduct which is very famous from the movies.
There were a lot of excited Harry Potter fans on the train. It is said to be one of the most beautiful train trips in the world. I would recommend taking the afternoon train because when the sun was starting to set over the Lochs I would absolutely agree with this statement.
Mallaig is a fishing port and the best thing to do there is get yourself to a restaurant and sample the local fare. Urs had hot-smoked salmon and I had prawns and both were delicious.
This sign made me smile….
The view of the Lochs with their glassy water and the image of the mountains reflected in them was beautiful beyond words. There is such a peacefulness here.
The famous Glenfinnan viaduct. Everyone was trying to get the perfect photo. All the Harry Potter fans anyway 🙂
The colours were amazing.
