An opportunity to experience some of Scotland's finest Highland scenery.

Let the dramatic Scottish Highland scenery glide past as you travel on three of Scotland's most scenic rail journeys. You will enjoy trips on the Strathspey Railway, The Jacobite Steam Railway, made world famous in the Harry Potter movies and a journey on the Kyle Line from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh, considered by Michael Palin, to be "one of the most beautiful rail journeys in Europe". We will also visit, The Glenfinnan Monument, view the Glenfinnan Viaduct and allow time to view Neptune's Staircase.
