Royal Scotsman – Taste of the Highlands

Taste of the Highlands

Two-nights exploring the Scottish highlands


Enjoy a two-night luxury sleeper train tour of the Highlands aboard the Royal Scotsman and get a true taste of the Scotiish highlands.

Embark on a magical tour across the Highlands of Scotland and sink into the most sumptuous train ever to ride the highlands. Departing from Edinburgh Waverley train station, the Royal Scotsman will wind through the epic landscape to the Rothiemurchus Estate in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. A private tour of the Culloden Battlefield then follows before finally, arriving at the Strathisla Distillery for a private tour of one of the oldest working distilleries and home to some of Scotland’s most famous whiskies.

After a day of Scottish discovery, it's back aboard the Royal Scotsman for some of the finest cuisine available. Unwind in the authentic carriages, complete with exceptional details such as polished wood and fine fabrics. Sit with a whisky as you watch the majestic Scottish countryside glide by, before retiring to your very own private accommodation. These luxury cabins are incomparable with plush beds with soft Scottish wools, an elegant dressing table and an en suite to add to the comfort. This luxury train journey is truly memorable and one to savour for a lifetime.
