Scotland Tours

A land of legend, lore and extraordinary beauty, Scotland is the ideal destination for escorted or self-guided vacations. A trip to Scotland can depart from London or begin in one of the enchanting cities within the country. Scotland's capital, Edinburgh, is the perfect beginning or endpoint for your Scotland vacation. This city has an enchanting fusion of cosmopolitan amenities and ancient sites, including 12th-century Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, which was constructed in the 16th century. From Edinburgh, travel north across the Firth of Forth en route to Aberdeen and the market town of Keith. Other vacation packages continue further inland by train to Glasgow or through the incredibly scenic Scottish Highlands to Inverness. Regardless of where the rail tour itinerary takes you, vistas of mysterious lochs, ancient castles and rolling green hills make the perfect backdrop.

Explore the endless facets of Scottish culture with travel packages that include stops in well-known cities and charming destinations in between. Taste your way through the Glen Ord Distillery, the last remaining Scotch whisky distillery on the Black Isle. Tour Scotland's remaining castles, including Ballindalloch Castle, Glamis Castle or Kinghorne. Marvel at the waterfalls of Glen Falloch or search for Nessie from the shores of Loch Ness. Journey to Cairngorms National Park, which houses the Rothiemurchus Estate, and visit the Culloden Battlefield outside Aviemore.

Scotland vacations often include train tours between these memorable points of interest. Enjoy a ride on one of the world's most iconic rail lines, the Jacobite Steam Train, while traveling between Fort William and Mallaig. This train crosses the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct that gained notoriety in the Harry Potter films. A trip on the West Highland Line presents the very best of the Scottish Highlands. Select travel packages also feature overnight adventures aboard Scotland's premier luxury train, the Royal Scotsman.

While perfect on their own, Scotland rail tours can be easily combined with a vacation in England, tours of Wales or Ireland trips for a more expansive vacation experience.

“Tour was very well run, organized, and included a variety of daily activities, including free time. The tour leader was so experienced, had a wealth of information. Was courteous and patient and seemed to be enjoying himself along with us. I highly recommend traveling with Vacations by Rail.
