Activity Level:


The north of Scotland is blessed with some wonderfully scenic railway lines. The challenge of building railways through difficult terrain was taken up by the great engineers of the Victorian age. Their legacy is in the sweeping curves and majestic viaducts of the single-track lines which cross wild moors and lonely glens. Highlights on this short break include a visit to the much-photographed Eilean Donan Castle, a ride aboard the Jacobite steam train that takes us over the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct and a visit to Boat of Garten on the Strathspey Line, which perfectly recreates the days of steam in the Highlands.

NC500: Please note that this itinerary features part of the North Coast 500, the highly scenic coastal route which begins and ends in Inverness.

Tour highlights:

  • Iconic views over Loch Shiel from the Glenfinnan Viaduct
  • Classic Steam journey through the Cairngorms
  • Breathtaking views of the Cuillin mountain range on Skye
  • The palm trees of Plockton
  • Scenic banks of the Beauly Firth
