passes along Loch Long and Loch Lomond before climbing into
the mountains, where at the tiny village of Crianlarich, the
train splits - half moving north to Fort William and on to Mallaig
for Access to Skye, while the other half travels west to Oban
for access to Mull and the rest of the Hebridean Islands.
