London to Fort William

The Caledonian Sleeper is the collective name for overnight sleeper train services between London and Scotland. It is one of only two sleeper services on the railway in the United Kingdom. It is getting an 100m upgrade. The brand new trains will have a range of modern new facilities and offers passengers a range of accommodation options for their journey. They’ll run first on the Lowland route from London to Edinburgh/Glasgow and then join up with the highland route to Fort William. The Highland service (The Deerstalker), is one of the best train journeys in Britain, with fantastic scenery, featuring the Glenfinnan viaduct, which features in ‘Harry Potter’.
