Tour Scotland video of steam trains on the West Highlands railway line in the Highlands of Scotland. The West Highland Line, Iron Road to the Isles, is a railway line linking the ports of Mallaig and Oban in the Scottish Highlands to Glasgow in Central Scotland. The line was voted the top rail journey in the world in 2009. Passenger services on the line are operated by Abellio ScotRail and Caledonian Sleeper: three daily return services between Glasgow Queen Street and Mallaig/Oban, and one nightly, except Saturdays, Caledonian Sleeper service between London Euston in England, and Fort William. During the summer season from May until October a steam locomotive hauls daily return service between Fort William and Mallaig known as The Jacobite, it is operated by West Coast Railways. There is usually one train a day but this is increased to two trains from June until the end of August.
