The West Highland Railway line will close for the whole day, each day, starting Saturday, March 13 to allow work on the track to be completed.

The works will be done at the Loch Treig portion, meaning the line will be closed from March 13 until March 20.

A replacement bus service will be in operation between Crianlarich and Fort William and between Fort William and Mallaig.

Rannoch and Corrour will not be served.

Services between Glasgow Queen St and Oban will be in operation as normal.

Considered one of the most scenic and beautiful railway journeys in the world, many visitors travel the West Highland Line to see some of the best sights in Scotland.

The station is one of Scotland’s most remote. Built in 1894, Rannoch Station links the furthest stretches of Scotland’s east coast communities to the west over miles over miles of bog and heather.

The Glenfinnan Viaduct portion of the line was famously used in the Harry Potter films and a museum on the history of the West Highland Line is located at Glenfinnan Station.
