The Jacobite - October 2012 [19:59]
Footage from the last week of the 2012 season of 'The Jacobite' operated by West Coast Railways and featuring LNER class K1, no.62005. Photographers who travelled to Scotland for the final week were rewarded with some stunning lighting and cold, still conditions for most of the week which enhanced the beautiful autumnal colours. My video includes some scenes at Fort William followed by the following locations on the journey to Mallaig; Lochy Viaduct Corpach Loch Eil Glenfinnan Viaduct and four of the Glenfinnan departures Polnish Chapel Loch non Uamh Viaduct Between Beasdale no.2 and 3 Tunnels Beasdale Station Morar River Viaduct Approaching Morar and Morar Station On the return from Mallaig the K1 is seen at Larichmore Viaduct Loch Dubh Climbing away from the shores of Loch Eilt Approaching Glenfinnan Summit and finally crossing the Banavie Swing Bridge. Thanks to West Coast Railways and members of NELPG who make it all possible.

Lochs and Glens [02:15]
Lochs and Glens follows a delightful mix of ancient drovers paths, military roads, disused railway lines and picturesque lanes from Loch Lomond, north through the Southern Highlands to the rich farmland of Perthshire. This is iconic Scotland: it is fantastic cycling country. Riding along the shore of Loch Venachar, over the viaduct at Glen Ogle or along the River Tay might be your personal highlight, but there's not a dull mile. There are hills -- it's the Highlands, after all -- but your efforts are consistently rewarded with grand descents, and an endless stream of majestic views of the forests, rivers, waterfalls, wild moorlands, Munros and dark lochs. Sleepy tea rooms, a distillery tour, welcoming pubs, watching salmon leap, a recreated Iron Age loch dwelling, a castle or even a refreshing wild swim may tempt you from the saddle temporarily, but never for long -- cycling the Lochs and Glens route is just too good.
