Royal Scotsman

Waverley Station Edinburgh

Arguably the world’s finest luxury train, this is 'doing Scotland' in serious style, or at least revelling in nostalgia as you take in some of the nation’s finest scenery on a choice of routes that cover both the famous West Highland and Kyle of Lochalsh lines. Stops are made to visit castles and distilleries, or to decamp for a ceilidh. The cabins have proper beds and the restaurant cars miraculously conjure up fine dining on wheels, while the bar car has an outdoor balcony, ideal for a wee dram as the scenery eases by. Just like on a top-end cruise, everything is included, so you don't have to worry about money. A popular honeymoon option – and a real once-in-a-lifetime experience. You couldn't afford to do it twice!
