About the tour
Trains, castles and wildlife galore: These are just some of the things you can look forward to on this 7-day small group rail tour through Scotland. Find yourself transported back to the Golden Age of rail travel during your time on the Caledonian Sleeper, which connects London and Inverness. Stay in unique accommodations and immerse yourself in Scotland's rich history and unique environs with culture and wildlife excursions ranging from a dolphin-spotting cruise along the Moray Firth and a guided tour of Eileen Donan Castle to 4x4 adventures in Alladale Wilderness Reserve, where you can meet the local wildlife.
Meet your Tour Manager and small group of fellow travelers at London Euston station this evening, and board the only overnight service running between London and Scotland: the famous Caledonian Sleeper Train. Since its inaugural journey in 1873, the train has become a bit of a clandestine institution, something many have heard of but few have experienced. Modern furnishings surround in the new train cars and updated the accommodation options allow each passenger just the right amount of comfort. There is an onboard lounge, as well. Settle into your private hotel room on wheels, and enjoy a night on the rails. Overnight train.
