Scottish Highlands Escorted Tours

Discover snow-capped peaks, mountain glens and lochs in beautiful northern Scotland

The wild and rugged beauty of the Highlands of northern Scotland has inspired artists for centuries, its dramatic imagery gracing countless postcards and shortbread tins. Explore the Scottish Highlands with Great Rail Journeys and you'll discover some of the most magical, picturesque and unspoilt landscapes in the British Isles.

Our Scottish Highlands tours offer varied and exciting itineraries; one moment you could be sweeping through the breathtakingly majestic scenery of the mountain glens of Glenfinnan on an iconic steam train, and the next be visiting the fairy-tale perfect Eilean Donan Castle, one of the most photographed locations in Scotland thanks to its superb setting on an island in Loch Duich.

Whilst large areas of the Scottish Highlands are wild, open and uninhabited, traversed only by remote roads and scenic railway lines, the region is also dotted with charming and picturesque villages, interesting towns, ancient castles such as Dunrobin Castle near the town of Beuly, and a host of distilleries, each with its own history and characteristics, which produce Scotland's most famous export: malt whisky.

When you explore the Scottish Highlands on one of our tours you'll have free time to seek out these highlights of Scotland and many more as you journey through a region rich in tradition, culture, history and sublime beauty.
