Scotland – Fort William
Based in Fort William, in the shadow of the mighty Ben Nevis, this year’s adventures are the best rail journeys in the Scottish Highlands. The Jacobite rail journey from Fort William, through the highlands onto Mallaig is described as one of the greatest in the world. Coupled with this is the stunning train journey from the Kyle of Lochalsh to Dingwall and the chance to spot “Nessie” from the banks of Loch Ness. All in all this extremely popular holiday offers the most amazing scenery the Scottish Highlands has to offer.

OVERNIGHT BAG REQUIRED.
The Alexandra Hotel
Part of the very fabric of Fort William since 1876, the Alexandra Hotel provides traditional Scottish hospitality at its best. Situated in a great location everything is close by. This deceptively large hotel boasts 93 bedrooms. Due to the age and nature of the grand old building all bedrooms are individual in size and shape but all have as standard en-suite bathrooms, television, hair dryer, direct dial telephone and tea and coffee facilities and some even have a view of Loch Linnhe
