Bursting with tradition, rich in history and culture, Scotland boasts breathtaking landscapes and vibrant cities, all able to be enjoyed by train. A journey aboard the Belmond Royal Scotsman or the Caledonian Sleeper brings a unique and unforgettable experience. From the comfort of a train, watch the diversity of the countryside transform, from the rolling hills of the Scottish borders onto the Lowlands with the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, then journey to the unspoilt rugged Highlands with its deep blue lochs and spectacular glens. Don’t miss visiting one of the many whiskey distilleries for a wee dram, see the battlefields of the clans and discover the many historical castles.
