Luxury Holiday Resorts and Hotels in United Kingdom

Embark on a Grand Highland Fling

At once leisurely and luxurious, intimate and eye-opening, step aboard and rekindle the romance of travel.

Riding Belmond Royal Scotsman is one of those pinch-me moments. Ranking among the world's most luxurious trains, our mahogany-clad cars marry Edwardian elegance with the comforts of a country house. Ten intricately designed carriages, including the sublime Bamford Spa, form a palace on wheels.

From the moment you step onto Belmond Royal Scotsman, you are swept up in a world of myth, legend and timeless luxury.

Delve into a land of soaring peaks and deep valleys, mirror lochs and looming castles. Enjoy a tasting in a world-famous distillery, then enter the forest for an exhilarating clay pigeon shoot. As night falls, mingle with fellow guests over candlelit dinners and live ceilidhs-a fine finale to the day's adventures.

The train first launched in 1985. Following a whirlwind five-year operation of award-winning success, the original carriages were retired and replaced by a new set of Pullman cars to be renovated by James Park Associates. Lacquer-polished wooden-panels and warm tonal fabrics perfected the Edwardian country-house appeal. En-suite cabins, complete with steamy showers, established unprecedented comfort and the birth of a luxury legend.

In 2007 the train was christened Belmond Royal Scotsman and has continued to raise the bar of style and innovation since. The recent addition of the Bamford Haybarn Spa carriage marks a world first in the pursuit of perfect pampering. A true chieftain of the rails, Belmond Royal Scotsman is an awe-inspiring way to delve into the soul of the Scottish highlands.


Intimate and indulgent, our private cabins are the perfect place to savour Scotland's glorious scenery.

After a day´s adventures exploring the Highlands, retire into a haven of Edwardian-inspired elegance. Each en-suite cabin features sophisticated mahogany marquetry and an inviting medley of tweed furnishings and soft Highland wool. As the rugged Scottish landscape glides by, let the view-and motion-soothe you into a well-earned rest.

Simply sit back, relax, and let our therapists indulge you as the striking scenery glides by.
