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.

Loch Lomond & The Scottish Highlands
5/Jun
Mr Moroney
5 stars
“Firstly the guide was knowledgeable & personable which is half the battle on this type of trip. The scenery is second to none even in poor light. Each day was something different train, coach & boat. Returning each day to the same base hotel, which was very good, with good food also, saved lugging luggage around or living out of a suit case. Altogether a lovey trip. Oh the others in the party were great too.

“The weather was much better than expected and the Highlands scenery was spectacular. Particularly enjoyed our visit to Blair Atholl Castle and the gardens and our trip to Mallaig on the Jacobite steam train. Our guide and hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend to family and friends.
