Tour Scotland Video West Highland Railway Line
Tour Scotland video of the West Highland Railway Line on visit to Lochaber in the Scottish Highlands of Scotland. The 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. After leaving Bridge of Orchy, the line climbs onto Rannoch Moor, past the former crossing point at Gorton Crossing to Rannoch station. In winter, the moor is often covered with snow, and deer may be seen running from the approaching train. The station at Corrour on the moor is one of the most remote stations in Britain and is not accessible by any public road. The final stop before Fort William is Spean Bridge. The section between Fort William and Mallaig passes over the Glenfinnan Viaduct, through Arisaig.
