Unfortunately we cannot guarantee which way your seats will be facing, or which side of the train your seats will be on, as sometimes the carriages are turned around without notice. If you are not happy with your seats on the day the best thing to do is to ask the guard if there are any others available that you can swap to.

∗ All return tickets purchased from West Coast Railways for the 'Jacobite', 'Scarborough' or one day Railtours train trips are purchased on the basis that the return trip must take place on the same day and on the same trip. The 'Jacobite' will occasionally operate a second trip during the same day - the timetables for which will be on the website. Your return ticket will only be valid for the same trip, i.e. if you have purchased a ticket for a departure time of 10:15am from Fort William the return trip will leave Mallaig at 14:10. For the avoidance of doubt, each ticket purchased for the 'Jacobite' trip clearly states your departure time and your return departure time on the ticket. For any queries regarding your departure times please contact the booking helpline. First Class passengers on the Jacobite service will receive one complimentary tea / coffee per direction of travel.
