Train on the Glenfinnan Viaduct in Scotland

I've just published an article on The Train Hacker about the Highland Railcard http://thetrainhacker.com/railcards/highland-railcard/ Residents of the Scottish Highlands can get 50% OFF train fares within The Highlands.

I thought I'd share this pic with you as I'm happy about the results. It's been edited in Lightroom which brings out the lovely colours and unique landscape of the Scottish Highlands

Edited this photo to go on an article for my train travel website http://thetrainhacker.com/uk/senior-train-tickets/ 

It was taken in July 2013 when it was full of summer colour.

View from Glenfinnan Viaduct and More Romantic British Train Trips

You've probably all seen the classic steam train going across the Glenfinnan Viaduct? I can hardly bring myself to say it but you know the one from the Harry Potter film (y-y-yyyaaaaaawwwnnnnnn).

Anyway this is this pic is the view that you get across from the steam train on the viaduct across to Loch Shiel and the surrounding mountains.

At the fare left of the visible loch in this photo you can just see the Glenfinnan Monument which stands to celebrate Bonnie Prince Charlie's call to raise the Highland clans.

This is just one of eight romantic train trips in the UK chosen by +Jools Stone and myself..so have a read and let us know what you think :-)

Introduction
Traveller - I've spent five years of my life travelling and will be spending more time travelling in the future. Trips include one month in Thailand, six months in Indochina (Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos), seven months in India, six months in the US and Canada, nine months in Europe. Numerous holidays in Goa, Spain, Greece, Turkey, the US, France, the UK etc. etc.

Digital Marketing Strategist - Most of my working time is helping travel publishers with their digital marketing strategy. I've been working in online media/marketing 16 years and including this in wider media 20 years. 

I take an ethical approach and deliver high value to my clients by providing consultancy and services 

Particular areas of strength include:
  • Strategy
  • Content Marketing/Strategy
  • SEO 
  • Conversion Optimisation
  • Brand/Reputation Building
  • Traffic Generation
  • Social Media
Publisher/Writer/Photographer - when not helping clients, I have some publishing projects with some long term plans to develop a few more websites in the travel sector.

Location Independent - well not all the time but working towards it. I've spent seven months on the road as a trial and hope to go full-time in the future.

Londoner - when not on the road I'm fortunate enough to live in London..the best city in the world :-)
