Why not discover the breathtaking scenery and imposing, turreted castles of Scotland on one of our most popular tours of this remarkable country? Scotland has a wealth of culture to offer, which we discover on our tour of 'Edinburgh, the Highlands & Islands'. This trip offers a myriad of fascinating experiences, from scenic train rides through the remote landscapes of the Highlands, to time in Scotland's vibrant capital city, Edinburgh. Our tour, 'A Castle of the Shores of Loch Fyne' allows passengers to take in this stunning, unspoiled region by rail, with the opportunity to explore an imposing 19th century baronial castle which overlooks the striking Loch Fyne. Or, take in the spectacular and stark landscapes of northern Scotland on our superb 'Highland Adventures' tour, which includes journeys on many nostalgic steam railroads.

'The Emerald Isle' is as resplendent as the name would suggest, and our Irish program introduces you to some of the country's incredible cultural highlights and verdant scenery. From a tasting at the famous Guinness Storehouse in lively Dublin, to an excursion to the Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland's most dramatic natural attractions, this tour is an amazing way to experience this exciting destination. Alternatively, travel to Switzerland and explore the magnificent scenery and quaint, traditional towns of the Swiss Alps, with a journey through the rocky landscapes on the iconic Glacier Express, all on our bestselling 'Traditional Glacier Express' tour.
