Itinerary:


Day 1 – Edinburgh:

Departing from Edinburgh Waverley Station early afternoon, you head north towards Perth. Enjoy an afternoon tea as the train continues through the rolling hills of Perthshire, offering stunning views of peaks and valleys right outside your window. Leisure time aboard is ideal for settling in to your luxury accommodation and conversing with fellow guests, before an informal dinner later that evening.

Day 2 – Keith:

A brief transfer takes you to Rothiemurchus Estate where you are invited to choose from a range of activities including clay pigeon shooting, fishing or a guided tour of the estate with a Park Ranger. Later, enjoy refreshments served in the hunting lodge and learn more about this family-run estate. Lunch is served on the train before you disembark to the Culloden Battlefield for a vivid guided tour from our Highlander. Later we travel to the Strathisla Distillery for a tour before returning to the train for a formal dinner. Traditional Scottish music is then offered in the Observation Car.

Day 3 – Spean Bridge:

After a hearty breakfast, we cross the magnificent Forth Railway Bridge, an ideal time to venture to the Observation Car! We disembark in Edinburgj to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia for a guided tour and a light lunch, or if guests choose, they are free to explore Edinburgj on their own. Board the Royal Scotsman once again later that afternoon for afternoon tea as we take in yet more spectacular views before an informal dinner is served on the way to Spean Bridge.

Day 4 – Fort William:

Travelling west, we see views such as that of Ben Nevis before we disembark at Arisaig for a relaxing stroll along the stunning Morar Sands. Return to the train for lunch as we head towards Fort William. A visit to historic Glenfinnan is brought to life by our Highlander who pains a vivid picture of Scottish heroes. Cream tea is served at Inverlohy Castle Hotel before we return to Fort William. Guests have the alternative option of a bike through Nevis Gorge if the weather permits. We return to the train once more to relax before an informal dinner.

Day 5 – Isle of Bute:

More dramatic scenery can be appreciated as it whisks past your window as we head to the west coast where you board a ferry in Wemyss Bay and head to the Isle of Bute. A beautiful island boasting a variety of landscapes and wildlife. Visit spectacular Victorian Gothic house Mount Stuart and marvel at the large privately held collection of family portraits. Afternoon tea is held in the Drawing Room before you explore the spectacular house and gardens. We return to the train for a formal dinner before retiring to the Observation Car for local entertainment.
