Grand Tour of Scotland by Train

Grand Tour of Scotland by Train Overview

A leisurely fortnight touring the Highlands and (some) islands, largely by train.

This comprehensive 14-night holiday is carefully designed to allow plenty of two night stopovers, and takes in the dramatic beauty of the West Highlands, the rugged charm of Skye, the delights of Inverness, the prehistory of Orkney and the magnificent scenery of the Cairngorm mountains. It includes the romance of the Jacobite steam train as well as several boat trips – after all, even we can’t arrange a railway journey over the sea! The boat trips enable you to reach the Small Isles, Skye and Orkney, where you’ll also have a day’s exploring. This meticulously planned journey is the ultimate leisurely and stress-free way to experience the Highlands and islands of Scotland.
