The '''Caledonian Sleeper''' [http://www.sleeper.scot/] is an overnight sleeper train that runs direct to Fort William from [[London]]. Due to its historic popularity among the landed gentry travelling to shooting parties it is affectionately nicknamed the "Deerstalker". The train leaves Euston every evening at 8PM except on Saturdays. Fares are £120 return, but "Bargain Berths" are available down to £19 one way if you book up to 12 weeks in advance - but are notoriously hard to get on the Fort William service during peak summer season. As an alternative, you can travel on the overnight Glasgow train (which leaves Euston at 2300) and complete the journey using a day service.
