This scenic and evocative holiday is based in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, a special place that is home to sparkling lochs and soaring mountains. The railway journeys we have chosen travel through the stunning countryside without a glitch in the landscape, so sit back and relax on this scenic Scottish spectacular.
Kyle of Lochalsh
Following in Michael Palin’s footsteps we travel from the Kyle of Lochalsh to Inverness, as featured in the television series Great Railway Journeys of the World. This line is one of the most scenic rail journeys in the world passing through ever changing beautiful Scottish landscapes.
Strathspey Steam Railway & Aviemore
We take a nostalgic trip on the Strathspey Steam Railway as we travel through the unspoilt Highland scenery of the Cairngorms and spend time in awe-inspiring Aviemore.
West Highland Line
Travelling over forty miles along the dramatic West Highland Line, from Fort William to Mallaig, overlooking the Isle of Skye. We cross the spectacular Glenfinnan Viaduct and rumble past the white sands of Morar. Once in Mallaig you could explore the Heritage Centre or visit the Kipper Smokery!
