308: The Jacobites

I'm relaxing in the Highlands of Scotland. Last night and tonight in a hotel in Spean Bridge and today travelling on the Jacobite steam train from Fort William to Mallaig (and back).
The name Jacobite is well-known in this region, and throughout Scotland, as the generic name given to a series of rebellions against the English - in 1689, 1715 and 1745. For more information on these uprisings click here.
Here are a few of the photos I took during the day today, showing not only the train but also some of the magnificent scenery and the Commando memorial here at Spean Bridge.

My video clip is entitled "ye Jacobites by name" and is by the Scottish folk group The Corries.
