Rail Tours in Scotland

Rail Travel in Scotland – Burns’ Country

The Scots would have you believe that there is no finer place for food, drink, friends and scenery. They might even be right. From the hidden beaches of Findhorn Bay, to the Machrie Moor standing stones on the Isle of Arran, travelling Scotland by rail unveils a country with something for everyone. There is Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness, the Cairns at Clava, the Malt Whisky Trail in Moray, the blue poppies at Inverewe Gardens and enough culture, tradition and history to last a lifetime.

Rail Travel in Scotland - Traveller's Notes

There are many things the English neglect about their neighbours and rail travel in Scotland is the perfect way to discover more. For example, Scotland's most famous resident the Loch Ness monster is not the only water-bound beastie above the border; unidentified creatures are said to inhabit the depths of many of Scotland's lochs including Loch Suainbhal and Loch Duvat.
