There is no doubt that touring Scotland by train is one of the best ways to see the landscape. In fact, it is becoming a favoured way of ours when travelling on the mainland.
The train lines cut through some of the most spectacular scenery in the country and indeed it is a wonder how these lines were even built in the first place. Criss-crossing the land through open green countryside, following rivers and glens, by lochs and mountains, over bridges and viaducts a rail tour of Scotland truly is an awe-inspiring journey.

Train Holidays in Scotland are an adventure and this is due to the wild, rugged and coastal landscapes you will be travelling in. The trains are clean, efficient and reliable. There is also the opportunity to travel on Steam trains on the West Highland Line and in Strathspey. Although there are no train tracks on the Isle of Skye, there are lines running to Kyle of Lochalsh for the Skye Bridge and Mallaig the Skye ferry. At both points there is good public transport taking you to the islands main towns including the capital, Portree.
