About the tour
Your travels begin along Scotland's West Highland Line, taking you to Spean Bridge, Bridge of Orchy and Edinburgh, where the first part of your journey concludes and the second part begins as you travel up the eastern coast to Keith and across the country to the picturesque west coast village of Plockton, on to Inverness and then south to Perth.
The train departs from Edinburgh in the early afternoon and heads west through Falkirk, to reach Craigendoran the starting point for the West Highland Line, while guests enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea. Spot the distinctive peak of Ben Arthur and soon you also catch a first glimpse of Loch Lomond. After climbing up the waterfall-rich Glen Falloch, the train continues north to the village of Spean Bridge for the night. Enjoy an informal dinner followed by entertainment in the Observation Car.
