Scotland with Great Rail Journeys
Let this short video transport you to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland by rail. Great Rail Journeys are the proven experts here and their escorted rail tours – usually of about 30 people – make exploring Edinburgh and enjoying the stunning west coast scenery really special. The West Highland Line follows a different route to the road so you have uninterrupted views over the water that drivers don’t see. And you’ll recognise The Jacobite steam engine ride from the Harry Potter films!
