The Magical Highlands and the Hogwarts Express tour starts and ends in Edinburgh. The Magical Highlands and the Hogwarts Express is an explorer tour that takes 1 days taking you through Edinburgh, Scotland and other destinations in Scotland.

A magical day to tick off the bucket list! Get stuck into a full day of stunning scenery, Nessie spotting as we drive around Loch Ness, and then check out the glorious West Coast – famous for seafood, beautiful beaches, and the Jacobite Steam Train, aka the Hogwarts Express. Channel your inner Harry or Hermione and jump on board to experience it for yourself.

Our day begins with Nessie hunting at world-famous Loch Ness, stopping for photos above the ruins of eerie Urquhart Castle. Your adventure continues south when we visit the Commando Memorial which overlooks Ben Nevis, the UKs highest mountain. All aboard! It’s time to jump on the Jacobite Steam train, aka the Hogwarts Express, and take one of the world’s most beautiful railway trips, departing from Fort William.

After taking in the stunning West Highland landscapes, we hop off the Jacobite Steam Train at the beautiful fishing port of Mallaig where you can try fresh seafood for lunch and explore the town.

Immerse yourself in more striking scenery before stopping in the charming Fort Augustus to see the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness up close. To round off an amazing day, we visit Dores Beach on the banks of Loch Ness, arriving back in to Inverness in the evening for a well-earned rest.
