Come and join us for a truly romantic Highland Railway journey through the stunning Scottish Highlands – 5 days

 

If you love romantic journeys then this is your dream come true. Join us on a truly romantic highland railway journey through the most spectacular Scottish scenery. The Kyle Line is one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys, running from Inverness on the east coast of Scotland, through to Kyle of Lochalsh on the west. During the trip, you’ll enjoy three romantic, memorable journeys on this fabulous railway.

 

We’ll travel from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh where we’ll pass through spectacular mountain and lake scenery. We’ll then be taken back in time on a ten mile long 1950’s branchline from Aviemore to Broomhill. Little has changed on this line since 1863 when the Victorians brought a railway to this splendid area of the Highlands. We’ll also enjoy a journey on the Jacobite Steam Train that crosses the Glenfinnan Viaduct, as seen in the Harry Potter film.

 

These breathtaking rail journeys will capture the contrasting villages and towns of Inverness, Fort William, Aviemore and Kyle of Lochalsh, whilst you sit back and relax as the dramatic Highland landscapes glide past you.
