Scottish Highlands Tours

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.

Orkney, Shetland & the Highlands
Mr P Allen
“An excellent tour, Sandra our tour manager was really efficient and the tour itself was very well thought out
Western Highlands & Hebrides
Mr P Johnson
“Thoroughly enjoyed the round of experiences in this holiday. A bit spoilt by the weather.
A Castle On The Shores Of Loch Fyne
Anonymous
“Very little free time, both to experience the hotel and surroundings and also the local harbour. It is Scotland, but there was a lot of travel to get anywhere. The trip to the distillery was a long way for an hour’s experience, and not really of much interest to the ladies perhaps.
The Outer Hebrides & The Highlands
Anonymous
“Everything was great but one part of the trip entailed too long on a coach and an overnight should have been scheduled. On the last morning at Cabarfeidh there was no senior person, 3 coach tours and they ran out of gas...no hot food for breakfast and only at end was toast and tea brought and that was because the staff stepped up and were wonderful esp. Jack. Though not Great Rail's fault it should be investigated...the meals were not 4 star either. Perhaps some competition & another hotel used on occasion as the management seem to have become complacent.

Great Rail Journeys offers a selection of tours which explore different aspects and areas of the Highlands of Scotland. A tour of the western Highlands reveals Scotland's rugged coastline, as well as wild inland areas such as the remote Rannoch Moor which, in the absence of roads, can only be crossed by train. The western Highlands, back-dropped by dramatically scenic mountain ranges is a region of legend - on this tour you'll visit Loch Ness, home of the infamous monster - and of legendary beauty in the form of the wildlife-rich Hebrides and Small Islands, Fort William and Ben Nevis; the highest mountain in the British Isles.

Some of the UK's most scenic railways are to be found in the Scottish Highlands and when you taking a Highland Adventure with Great Rail Journeys offers the chance to travel on the Strathspey Steam Railway, the Jacobite Steam Train and the Cairngorm Mountain Railway; Scotland's only funicular railway which gently ascends to give superb views of the Cairngorm range and the popular Highland resort of Aviemore.

There can be few more enjoyable ways of enjoying Scotland's unique scenery, remarkable railways and historic heritage than by exploring the Scottish Highlands with Great Rail Journeys.
