Travel Inspiration: All Aboard. A Luxury Train Journey Through Scotland.
Riding Royal Scotsman, a Belmond Train, is one of those pinch-me moments. Ranking among the world’s most luxurious trains, the mahogany-clad cars marry Edwardian elegance with the comforts of a country house. Ten intricately designed carriages, including the sublime Bamford Spa, form a palace on wheels… your home as you traverse Scotland on a three-day or even week-long journey.
Cross the iconic, centuries-old Glenfinnan Viaduct, famous for its peerless view of the stunning Scottish highlands, and perhaps for being the route of Harry Potter’s fictional Hogwarts Express.
Revive your senses and connect with nature with a wild swim in Drumintoul Loch, reaping the benefits of cold water swimming while surrounded by the mystical Scottish landscape–followed by a warm drink and delicious picnic.
Enjoy expertly guided, intimate tours of castles and estates and other must-sees: Loch Lomond, Ben Nevis, the Isle of Bute, and Mount Stuart.
Indulge in a signature Royal Scotsman spa ritual as dramatic scenery speeds by; certainly one of the most unique spas Scotland has to offer.
As each fascinating day comes to an end, mingle with like-minded explorers and Belmond crew for stories and live music at the bar, where local folklore and the finest malts await.
