This scenic drive starts in Fort William which is located on the foot of the splendid Ben Nevis: the highest mountain of the United Kingdom. The road sweeps along mystifying lochs, dramatic green hills, fast flowing streams and pristine white beaches. Don't miss the twenty-one arches of the famous Glenfinnan viaduct, which you will undoubtedly recognize from the Harry Potter films. To capture the iconic steam train, make sure you find out what time this train crosses the viaduct. Mallaig is the final destination of this road trip. This charming fishing port is good for fish and chips but could also serve as the port to another road trip... Among other amazing places the ferry takes you to the incredible Isle of Skye.
