Jacobite Cream Teas
Allow me to set the scene if you will. You are sitting in the comfort of your beautifully upholstered seat, in a carefully restored Mark I or Mark II first class carriage. Ahead, your vintage steam engine takes you on the greatest railway journey in the world between Fort William and Mallaig in Scotland; surely it doesn't get better? Then along comes your delicious Jacobite Cream Tea.
Whether you have booked your place on this most historic journey or are still to do so, why not add the final touch?
Please note: The Jacobite Cream Teas are only available to pre order and only to passengers travelling in the main first class carriage A. The Cream Teas are generally served around Glenfinnan on the Outward journey from Fort William on the morning trip and the afternoon trip.
