DAY ONE – Arrival

We depart from your home and travel north to the Highlands, arriving late afternoon at the Duke of Gordon Hotel in Kingussie.

 

DAY TWO – Aviemore, Cairngorms and Strathspey Railway

We make our way to Aviemore where we take a break before heading into the beautiful Glenmore Forest Park on our way to Cairngorm. Here we have the opportunity, weather permitting, to take a ride on the fantastic Cairngorm Mountain Railway, taking us to the top in just 8 minutes. You can obtain lunch in the Panoramic Restaurant and admire the superb views. This afternoon we ride on the Strathspey Railway from Aviemore to Boat of Garten and Broomhill, before returning to our hotel.

 

DAY THREE – Kyle of Lochalsh

This morning we head to Kyle of Lochalsh for a morning break before joining the Scotrail train for one of the Great Railway Journeys of the World - the Kyle line. The route takes us through some of the best scenery in the country, skirting lochs and passing remote villages on the way back to Inverness. Here you’ll re-join the coach for the ride back to Kingussie.

 

DAY FOUR – Fort William and Mallaig

Today’s excursion takes us south west along the shore of Loch Laggan and through Glen Spean to Fort William. Here we have another train journey along the celebrated West Highland Line to Mallaig. This spectacular line passes hidden lochs and inlets, silver sands, and crosses the magnificent Glenfinnan viaduct on its way west. Mallaig is a major fishing port, and we have time to wander around the harbour and explore before we catch the train for the return journey to Fort William, where you’ll rejoin the coach for the ride back to Kingussie.

 

DAY FIVE – Inverness by Train

Today we take a short stroll to Kingussie station where we catch the train to Inverness. The line takes us through spectacular scenery over the line’s summit at Slochd before descending into the Highland Capital, Inverness. You can then enjoy some time to explore the city and obtain lunch before catching the return train to Kingussie.
