Our Hotel on The West Highland Line
Often voted as one of the most scenic rail journeys in the World!
A trip on the magnificent West Highland Line is an adventure in itself. Famous for its stunning scenery and more recently as the route of the Hogwarts Express crossing the Harry Potter (Glenfinnan) viaduct.
The Moor of Rannoch was originally constructed as accommodation for the engineers who built the West Highland Railway Line in 1890. Sections of the railway had to be floated across the vast peat bogs that form Rannoch Moor. The railway line therefore crosses parts of the moor that are virtually inaccessible by any other means.
Scotrail operates a regular rail service between Glasgow Queen Street & Fort William/Mallaig. Tickets can be purchased online in advance or onboard the train.
There are no ticket printing machines at Rannoch Station.
The train from Glasgow Queen Street splits into two sections at Crianlarich. Make sure you are in the Fort William/Mallaig section. The other section of the train travels to Oban!!!
