I will hopefully be visiting the UK for a month in September and was hoping to get some ideas about train travel.
This is my vague course of action
London - Chichester - train
Chichester - Exeter
Exeter - Truro
Truro - Barnstaple
Barnstaple - Windermere
Windermere - Glasgow
Glasgow - Ayr
Ayr - Fort William
Fort William - Mallaig
Mallaig - Isle of Skye
Isle of Skye - Inverness
Inverness - Edingburgh
I am also looking at a few other rail options.
I really do want to travel on the Jacobite so that is a definite must
I was looking at the Dorset Express on the 6th of Sept
I was also looking at West Highland from the 9-12 which I believe shows views of where the Jacobite travels
I was going to throw all my plans out the window and go like this
Arrive in the UK
Evan Evans tour of Winchester, Salisbury and Bath
Go to Chichester for a couple of days
Come back and for the West Highlander
on the 12th when it return, hire a car, do some driving and end up in Ayr eventually.
From there continue the travel as planned
Any ideas or suggestions for train travel?
All of the above specialist trips are by steam loco - YAY
