Highland Highlife

This month sees the opulent carriages of Orient-Express' Royal Scotsman return to the Highlands as the 2012 season for Britain's only luxury sleeper train commences. Exquisite meals crafted from the best local ingredients, many of which are picked up from local suppliers along the journey, sleeping in cosy cabins aboard the train whilst it’s stabled in remote stations, access to some of Scotland’s most beautiful stately homes and tours of the finest whisky distilleries are just some of the highlights. The season, which runs until October, has regular departures from Edinburgh Waverley Station touring the rugged Scottish Highlands, visiting sites including Loch Lomond, Ben Nevis and the beautiful Morar Sands. The collection of itineraries includes the two night Highland journey giving a taste of Scotland’s rich heritage; the three night Western journey, which explores Scotland’s wild West Coast; the four night Classic journey, covering some 720 miles and visiting some of Scotland’s most iconic sights including Glamis Castle; and the five night Grand West Highland journey, a combination of the Western and Highland journeys.
