Available by berth or as a private charter, a prestigious train journey and stay on The Royal Scotsman is perhaps one of the most timeless and classic luxury travel experiences available in Scotland.

From boarding via royal escort in Edinburgh’s Waverley Station to rolling north through the majestic mountains and lochs of the Scottish Highlands with special stops and outdoor activities prearranged along the way, a journey on this world-famous train is sure to inspire and captivate. Onboard the train lacks for nothing with twenty ensuite State Cabins with showers (15 twins, 3 doubles and 4 singles), an onboard spa, outdoor viewing verandah, two elegant dining cars and a bar car. The food and drink offering onboard is a real highlight too and a wonderfully extravagant experience in itself with each menu celebrating Scotland’s fresh produce and fine local fare.

Accommodation Highlights

  • With cocktail in hand the romance of luxury train travel meets the romantic Highland scenery in the train's sumptuous Observation Car.
  • Exquisite fine dining and attentive service offered by the onboard acclaimed head chef and award winning concierge team.
  • The experience is all-inclusive so clients can relax and enjoy the journey with nothing to worry about.

Unique Experiences

Wilderness Fine Dining & Stargazing

Have an adventure under the stars as you enjoy a private wilderness dining experience before joining an astronomer to learn the wonders of the cosmos.  Our wilderness mobile dining experience is second to none and offers clients the chance to dine in comfort and style within a fully serviced, heated mobile dining unit at a remote location in the UK’s largest National Park.

Private Kilt Fitting

Get to grips with Scotland’s national dress with a bespoke kilt fitting. Away from the busy streets of the Royal Mile, we’ve teamed up with an acclaimed Edinburgh kilt-maker to offer clients exclusive access to a private custom fitting experience and the chance to meet the young tailor in his workshop to learn more about the history of this ancient Highland garment.

Insiders Whisky Tour & Tasting

Everyone wants to taste whisky in Scotland but go to a regular distillery and it’s a very standard experience. We have access to a private whisky distillery and also a private (and super-quirky!) gin distillery. These are not open to the public so your travellers will be the only visitors there and be shown around by the master distillers themselves.

When reaching out to inquire about our custom adventures, please keep in mind that your request encompasses the entirety of the experience, not solely a particular accommodation. Our offerings extend beyond these featured properties, ensuring a tailored journey crafted with purpose.
