“The holiday introduced my wife and I to an area of Scotland we knew little about and had never visited before. We were stunned by its beauty, the friendliness of its people and the variety and value of the places to visit. Great Rail organised a packed itinerary and delivered it almost without fault. The two hotels we stayed at were comfortable and the food at one - the Stonefield Castle - was outstanding. The shine was taken off the whole holiday by circumstances beyond Great Rail's control - namely the threat and actuality of national rail strikes.
