The Royal Scotsman takes you straight to the heart of the Highlands, through landscapes of towering, pine-clad mountains reflected in mirror-still lochs. Travel through Scotland's finest countryside in private cabins, with an open-deck observation carriage behind. Life on board this luxury train is relaxed and indulgent, with gastronomic dining and the convivial atmosphere of celebrating with friends. After dinner, over a wee dram, a local clansman recounts tales that bring Scottish history alive. Travelling only during the day, the train berths at night to ensure a sound sleep.
The Sleeping Cars provide fourteen twin, two double and four single State Cabins, beautifully fitted out in rich marquetry, each providing a comfortable and intimate area to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery of Scotland. Each cabin has its own private bathroom with shower, wash-basin and toilet, constant hot water, high quality toiletries and fresh fluffy white towels every day. Other facilities include: lower beds, dressing table, full-length wardrobe, hairdryer, individually controlled heating, cooling ceiling fans, opening windows, cabin service call button.
Dining is always a highlight, with sumptuous meals served throughout your journey. Served in the mahogany-panelled Dining Cars, enjoy your meal in groups of fours, or on larger tables of six or eight. A range of fine wines, liqueurs and malt whiskies is available from the extensive cellar.
The Edwardian splendour of The Royal Scotsman's observation car provides the perfect backdrop to enjoy the delights of your journey. The observation car offers an ever-changing panorama of virgin countryside and wild coastal scenery as the train moves past rugged castles, picturesque villages and heather-pink glens, home to magnificent creatures including eagles and stags. The views may be enjoyed from the comfort of the interior or from the exhilarating open verandah. Comfortable sofas and armchairs provide seating for all thirty-six guests and conviviality and conversation are assured.
