Royal Scotsman

Royal Scotsman logoTraditional style and elegant comfort provide an unparalleled way to explore the best of Scotland and the Highlands.

As the train draws out of Edinburgh's Waverley Station, travellers embark on a journey that combines thrilling history, breathtaking nature and dramatic romance.

Guests can enjoy a morning in the great outdoors with an exhilarating clay pigeon shoot. Take a Highland safari before lunch, followed by a visit to a ruined castle or a whisky distillery.

They can indulge in afternoon tea while sharing stories with new friends as the train journeys on. Nightfall brings cocktails and candlelit dinners, while a comfortable cabin provides the perfect place to dream of the next day's adventures.

The Train

With just 36 guests, this is railway travel at its most personal.

There are 14 twin, two double and four single State Cabins in our Sleeping Cars, each lined with rich marquetry. All have a private bathroom with shower, washbasin and toilet, constant hot water, high-quality toiletries and fresh towels every day.

The Observation Car is the social hub of the train. Mingle with your fellow travellers over aperitifs, sinking into plush sofas as castles, villages and glens glide by.



Dining is always a highlight aboard the Belmond Royal Scotsman. Meals are served in the mahogany-panelled Dining Cars in groups of four, or on larger tables of six or eight.

Regional specialities are created with the best local produce. From hearty Highland breakfasts to the freshest seared fish and melt-in-the-mouth Aberdeen Angus beef, all dishes are sure to impress.
