Day Three

To Tarbet this to join the morning train to Fort William. This stunning journey takes us firstly along the north westerly shores of Loch Lomond through the Trossachs National Park to Crianlarich, an important Highland junction of both road and rail, and Tyndrum, the smallest place in Scotland to boast two railway stations. The line climbs onto Rannoch Moor. The station at Corrour, on the moor, is one of the most remote stations in Britain. Carrying on northwards, the final stop before Fort William is Spean Bridge. Throughout the journey the line is single track and trains must wait at stations with crossing loops for opposite direction trains to pass. Once we arrive in Fort William the afternoon is free to explore this delightful town.
