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.

Also enjoy a journey on the Jacobite Steam Train that crosses the Glenfinnan Viaduct, as seen in the Harry Potter film. You will be taken back in time to a ten mile long 1950s railway line between Aviemore, Boat of Garten and Broomhill where, remarkably, little has changed since 1863 when the Victorians brought a railway to this splendid area of the Highlands.These breathtaking rail journeys will capture the contrasting villages and towns of The Highlands.
