If Scotland is a dream destination and you’ve got cash to splash, consider taking a journey on the Royal Scotsman, a luxury train like no other.
Not only are the Royal Scotsman’s cars beautiful and fitted with exceptional amenities such as en-suite cabins with steam showers, but there’s also an onboard spa, jaw-dropping views from every window (but especially from the cozy observation car), and a selection of thematic journeys to please every traveler.
The Royal Scotsman’s journeys include Scottish Highlands tours, scenic trips across western Scotland, and the Scotch Malt Whisky Tour.
The Scotch Malt Whisky Tour is a luxurious four-night whisky-themed journey through Scotland in partnership with the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. It starts and ends in Edinburgh, and takes guests on an exclusive trip to the Highlands, Cairngorms National Park, Dundee, and more. It stops at renowned distilleries along the way, such as Tomatin, Macallan, and Tullibardine. Whisky tastings will also take place on board, led by knowledgeable experts from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society.
Royal Scotsman’s Scotch Malt Whisky Tour runs twice this summer, once in July (21st-25th) and once in August (23rd-27th). A third trip in October running from October 4th to 8th is sold out — so jump on tickets before the others sell out as well if you’re interested.
When your journey comes to an end, you’ll become a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society for one year, so for the dedicated Scotch drinker, the four-night stay might be worth the starting price of $7,500 per person for the July trip and $9,800 for the August journey.
