The Royal Scotsman

Experience Scotland, Feel Like Royalty

Through rugged mountains, sweeping glens, endless lochs, wild shores and nature-rich heathland await you on this unforgettable journey through Scotland’s vibrant landscape.

Worry not, although you may be visiting rugged landscapes, onboard the train you’ll be in the lap of luxury, eating fine chef-cooked food and enjoying the relaxing environment of your own travelling hotel.


About this journey

Enjoy a relaxed journey, anywhere between one and seven nights onboard the Edwardian Country House inspired Royal Scotsman. Spend your time aboard being pampered with personal service, and taking in the surroundings around you, including viewing the stunning Forth Bridge from the Observation Deck.

Off the train, there is the opportunity to take part in many activities such as clay pigeon shooting, highland safaris, visiting distilleries and all sorts of cultural options.

We’re not forgetting the food either, with two dining cars, Raven and Swift, you’ll enjoy traditionally inspired dishes using fresh local produce and served in the mahogany panelling and rich upholstery.

If you are really looking for that something that sets this journey apart, you can have a little extra pampering in the special Haybarn Spa carriage. Enjoy a Bamford Bespoke Facialor Deep Tissue Massage, or spruce up with a manicure or pedicure
