Scotland by Rail - Escorted Holidays

Scotland's bold culture, rich heritage and astounding natural beauty make it the perfect backdrop for a truly remarkable holiday. Our rail tours of Scotland introduce you to the heart and soul of the enthralling country, from the rural islands that lie just of its coast to its lively capital of Edinburgh which draws visitors throughout the year. Many of our rail holidays give you the opportunity to admire Scotland's dramatically beautiful Highlands and lochs in comfort during journeys on renowned heritage railways. 

Exploring Scotland with Rail Discoveries

There are a wide variety of excursions included in our rail tours of Scotland, which range from scenic tours such as boat trips and city tours to more sociable activities like whisky tasting. Guests also have plenty of free time for exploring independently, meaning that you will have the opportunity to shop, socialise or revisit sights.

There are many jewels amongst Scotland's breath-taking landscape including the vibrant capital of Edinburgh where historic fortresses and a medieval Old Town blend with the city's more modern areas. There are also many idyllic coastal hamlets such as the charming seaport of Oban where you can sample fresh seafood in a local café or explore the local attractions that line its port. During your time in the more rural areas of Scotland you may witness some of the country's phenomenal wildlife which includes a variety of birds and mammals.

Edinburgh & the Highlands by Steam
23 Oct 2020
Mrs Doris Wellstead
5 stars
“Even with the Covid pandemic this tour was excellent. Graham the Tour Courier was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The Ibis hotel in Edinburgh was not up to standard, would have been better in a Premier Inn. Atholl Arms hotel was very good, would have preferred all meals in hotel.

Mr J Armstrong
4 stars
“Excellent holiday in many respects,especially the 2 full days in and around Morar. The 2 hotels could have been better, as the Holiday Inn in Glasgow had very limited dining facilities- leading to a 20 minute walk in pouring rain to find somewhere suitable to eat. The Morar Hotel is beautifully situated but totally disorganised.
