Journeys on this train
Belmond Royal Scotsman Classic Tour is one of the best in the world. From the bagpipes and intimate musical events, to the grand sweep of the moors and the gorges, the Belmond Royal Scotsman's Classic Tour is a journey straight to the heart of the Scottish Highlands.
Life on the train is relaxed and indulgent, with the freshest, finest local produce served in the dining cars. From Edinburgh, the train follows the east coast up to Keith, then journeys to the picturesque west coast village of Plockton, thence to Inverness and south to Perth.
Two highlights: a private tour and tasting at Glen Ord Distillery and a personal tour of Ballindalloch, with its magnificent castle and gardens. Other activities include clay pigeon shooting or guided walking along Caledonian pine forest trails. Life on the train is relaxed and indulgent, with the freshest, finest local produce served in the dining cars and nights in the all en-suite sleeping cars spent at quiet sidings. This is one of IRT's favorite train experiences -- and once aboard, you will see why. Combine it with the Western Tour, and you have one of IRT President Eleanor Hardy's favorite journeys of all time.
