In Search of the Real Scotland: For centuries, outsiders had seldom visited the beautiful landscape of the west coast of Scotland, but then the power of steam changed everything. Within a century, railways spread across the country, and with the trains came the tourists-all clamoring for a piece of the real Scotland. Murton follows their lead by taking the Jacobite steam train to Mallaig and then on to the Isle of Skye.
