Scotland doesn't waste an inch of its mountainous area in order
to delight and impress visitors. The space between beautiful and
historic cities such as Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Dundee is filled with the
breath-taking mountains, lochs, glens and valleys that have
inspired poets, artists and visitors for hundreds of years.
Wild and unspoilt, Scotland's landscapes are timeless, and few
pleasures can compare with stepping aboard a magnificently-restored
steam train and gently rolling through the dramatic heather-clad
hills of the Scottish Highlands.
In truth Scotland is packed with unique and unforgettable
experiences. Here you can search for a pre-historic monster that
lurks beneath the placid surface of Loch Ness. You can visit one of Scotland's
iconic distilleries and sample the finest single-malt whiskies in
the world. Take a cruise to the ruggedly pretty Hebridean Islands,
Orkney or Shetland. Witness
the spectacle of the world-famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo. These are
just a few of the countless pleasures that are you'll enjoy on an
escorted rail holiday in Scotland with Great Rail Journeys.
