Package Introduction

From: £2000+VAT
per 6 guests

We begin our journey in Fort William where guests will become Harry Potter as they ride in a private 1st class cabin on the Jacobite Steam Train!
Described as the greatest railway journey in the world, this 42 mile trip takes you past a list of impressive extremes. Starting near the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis, it visits Britain’s most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis.
The train stops en route to Mallaig at the village of Glenfinnan (see below and subject to time permitting). Beyond Glenfinnan are the beautiful villages of Lochailort, Arisaig, Morar and Mallaig. You may alight at Arisaig by request to the guard. From here, on a clear summer’s day, you can see the “Small Isles” of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna and the southern tip of Skye. The train continues on from here passing Morar and the silvery beaches used in the films “Highlander” and “Local Hero”.
Sip Champagne and enjoy one of Scotland best scenic railway journeys. After around 2 hours of comfort and relaxation we take you on a short stroll around Mallaig to your own private boat for the rest of the day. 

Cruise the Knoydart Peninsula

This cruise stays close to shore, exploring the surroundings and seascapes of the Knoydart Peninsula. It’s an excellent way to explore and interact with wild, natural areas. The Knoydart Peninsula on Scotland’s West Coast is sandwiched between Loch Nevis and Loch Hourn, forming the northern part of what is traditionally known as “The Rough Bounds” due to its harsh terrain and remoteness. Knoydart is also known as “Britain’s Last Wilderness.” 
This cruise departs from Mallaig and allows passengers to fully appreciate the romantic landscapes of the Northwest Highlands. The tour takes you up the north shore from Mallaig, around the Knoydart peninsula, and along the waters of Loch Nevis (Gaelic for Loch Heaven) or to Loch Hourn, Scotland’s most fjord-like sea loch. Aside from the crags and clouded peaks of the mountains, passengers should keep an eye out for the area’s sea life, which includes a variety of seabirds, sea eagles, otters, grey and common seals basking on rocks, dolphins, porpoises, and minke whales.
We will bring the shoreline to life with our wealth of ancient history and local stories, haul lobster pots and drop a fishing line. During the trip, we will serve a mouth-watering, freshly sourced luxury seafood lunch .  The vessel will stop to allow passengers to explore remote villages nestled on the shores of Britain’s last wilderness. The Village of Inverie  has a pub called the Old Forge which is in the Guinness book of records as “Britain’s remotest mainland pub”. During the return journey passengers can unwind with a dram of Gaelic whisky or a niche beer from the Knoydart brewery and take one last look back at the landscape of Britain’s last unspoiled wilderness.

The Most Delectable Seafood Available

The cold waters of the Atlantic produce some of the most delectable seafood available. We gather our produce the night before to ensure its freshness, which is critical to providing the best seafood in the area. Lunch can consist of creel caught langoustines, Arisaig mussels, silver sands hot smoked salmon, lobster, and hand-dived scallops.
