Starting from London Euston, we are delighted to present a scenic wintertime excursion to Inverness.  Travel is in First Class comfort in our InterCity Mark Three carriages, hauled by our Class 87 electric locomotive.  We follow the West Coast Main Line through the Midlands, the Lake District and over Beattock summit to the Scottish Lowlands, where our electric locomotive is replaced with two of our Class 47 diesels to take us to our destination.

Beyond Perth, we take the 118 mile Highland Main Line through rugged, wild landscapes.  Our special train will tackle both Drumochter and Slochd summits as we make our way through the Cairngorm National Park.  The spectacular mountain pass at Drumochter and the viaducts at Culloden and Tomatin provide an impressive backdrop to our journey.

Choose from three destinations for your overnight stay in either Perth on the banks of the River Tay or may be Aviemore in the Cairngorms National Park.

Alternatively, continue to our final destination of the vibrant City of Inverness, known as the capital of the Highlands, offering a wide range of hotels, award-winning restaurants, and cosy Scottish pubs to enjoy. Take an evening walk along the banks of the River Ness, or a morning stroll after breakfast to visit the stunning St Andrew’s Cathedral or enjoy the breath-taking views from the delightful Inverness Castle.
