Commencing in Edinburgh, the exclusive small group escorted tour includes a guided sightseeing walk discovering the many historic sites of the capital, before venturing to the famous castle in Stirling, once the childhood home of Mary Queen of Scots. Later, passengers will board the Jacobite Steam Train in Fort William to experience the West Highland Line. During the journey, the train climbs into the mountains surrounding Glenfinnan, a small-town famous as the rallying point for Bonnie Prince Charlie’s assault on the British throne.

Crossing the 21-arched Glenfinnan Viaduct is a world-renowned bucket list travel experience, an iconic example of British engineering, immortalized within the Harry Potter films as the famous journey taken by the Hogwarts Express.

Whilst in the Highlands, guests will also visit Eilean Donan Castle before travelling to Aviemore. Here they join the Strathspey Steam Railway for a journey through Cairngorm National Park. Winding alongside the River Spey, guests will look out over scenery of rolling hills blanketed by purple heather, the craggy top of Cairngorm Mountain, thick pine forests and wooded glens.
