Experience an epic journey through the Highlands of Scotland in a restored palace on wheels. The beautifully fitted Pullman cars feature Lacquer-polished mahogany-panels and Edwardian elegance. The en-suite cabins come with hot steamy showers and plush beds fitted with soft Scottish wools and tartans. In this comfort, your mind can switch to daydreaming while gazing through the large-sized oval windows overlooking the passing landscape.
Belmond Royal Scotsman ranks among the world’s most luxurious trains. The romantic ride starts at Edinburgh Waverley station with the opening of a champagne bottle, of course. Next, a sumptuous dinner is served in one of the two dining cars. Then, head to the bar for a sip of a top-quality Whiskey as the local musicians lead the evening entertainment.
The luxurious hotel on wheels has a remarkable feature in the back, one that makes the London Routemaster buses so unique. The open-air veranda is the best vantage point on the train. This observation car is best enjoyed with a hot tea and a companion to share the unique experience of an unobstructed view of the Scottish scenery.
Back on board, the recent addition of the Bamford Haybarn Spa carriage raised the bar of posh rail travel even further. Massage to the relaxing, thumping sounds of the train? Oh yes, please.
