'The Jacobite' DVD
'The Jacobite' now a world famous steam charter service running from the largest town in the Highlands, Fort William to Britain's most westerly station, Mallaig. The train journey now attracts thousands of visitors every year and for the first time, the 2011 season of services saw a second train running on selected days throughout the main tourist season. The 42 mile journey takes you through some of the magnificent scenery Scotland has to offer passing several loch's, climbing steep banks and curving round some strenuous corners. The journey passes many landmarks one of which includes the world famous Glenfinnan Viaduct which featured during the Harry Potter movies. The 21 arch viaduct was built between 1897 and 1901, one of the largest undertakings using concrete at the time. The viaduct allows the railway to curve round into the small village of Glenfinnan and offers splendid views of Loch Shiel. The journey also passes Britain's highest mountain, deepest loch, shortest river and most westerly station.
