Glenfinnan Sleeping Car

Glenfinnan Sleeping Car


Heritage railway carriage retaining many of its original 1950s features but converted into unique and comfortable accommodation for up to 10 people. 
Ideal for backpackers and other visitors whether walking, cycling or using public transport: adjacent to the restored Edwardian-era railway station, with a bus stop just 100 yards/90 metres away.
Close to the 1745 Monument and the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct made famous in the Harry Potter movies for scenes involving Hogwarts Express, the Sleeping Car gives you a superb jumping-off point to explore along the famous Road to the Isles. 
With access to the mountains, beaches and other stunning wild places of Moidart, Ardnamurchan, Morvern, Knoydart and Ardgour, the Sleeping Car is a wonderful starting point for both bothy expeditions and visits to the Small Isles (Rum, Eigg, Canna and Muck), as well as being ideally situated for the link to the Skye ferry.

Your overnight stay includes complementary admission to the railway museum housed in the station buildings. The adjacent Dining Car coach provides excellent meals to give you a break from self catering.

To get here by car: turn off the A830 Road to the Isles (Fort William - Mallaig) at Glenfinnan, signposted to Station.
