Drive from Mallaig to Ft William

Does the trip by car from Mallaig to Fort William compare to the train trip for scenic beauty? Would take the train if we could, but this will be a leg of a road trip (Glasgow > Inverness > Ullapool > Skye > Glasgow). Thanks!

The road has also been greatly improved over the years. Back in the day, although the only road to the ferry, it was a single track road with passing places for large sections. Now you can at least do the entire trip without practising your reversing skills every time a lorry appears heading your way. :-)

Out of interest, what time does the steam train cross the viaduct?
