West Coast Railways, operator of the famous Jacobite steam train that carries thousands of visitors from Fort William to Mallaig every year, has confirmed its 2022 schedule.

Travelling along the West Highland Line, what is often referred to as ‘the greatest railway journey in the world’, the Jacobite will head out of Fort William station on Monday April 4.

The service will be operating seven-days-a-week and, for the majority of the season, running two trips daily.
