The peaceful beauty of a Skye landscape, takes one's breath away.
5 a.m. - a beautiful dawn welcomes us to Scotland.
Early morning in Glasgow
Very little stirring at 6 a.m. close to Queen Street Railway Station
Queen Street Railway Station
West Highland Express
This railway journey, between Glasgow and Mallaig, is rated as one of the world's greatest.
The Harry Potter Via Duct
All the Scots we met were so proud that this via duct was used in the filming of the Harry Potter series.
The super nice train conductor provided me with a glass free window and had the train come to a stop so that I could photo the scene !
We pass through beautiful landscapes, farms and woods and so many sheep !
The remoteness of the landscapes gives the feeling that nothing has ever changed here.
The train winds its way north stopping at quaint stations.
We pass by fabulous scenery on each side of the train !
Road to Skye
Rail, that is ! Getting close to Mallaig, the stepping stone to Skye, we now get beautiful seascapes.
