The very next morning we left Fort William for Portree on the Isle of Skye which is one of isles of The Inner Hebrides, Scotland.
At Fort William we took the West Highland Line further North to Mallaig at the coast. (Train journey 1 hour and 23 minutes ) In Mallaig we boarded the ferry to Armadale and from there the local bus to Portree. First the impressions from the train journey to Mallaig.

You also can take the Jacobite Steam train to Mallaig which, as I’m told, was used in the Harry Potter movie. However we decided to take the diesel train instead. One of the highlights of this train journey is definitely the Glenfinnan Viaduct. It was built between 1897 and 1901. The train stopped when we were on the viaduct and then went very, very slowly around the bend. When you look out of the train window it will give you the idea the curve of the viaduct is rectangular. Spectacular viaduct!
