Belmond Royal Scotsman Exclusive Luxury Train
Scotland's Luxury Train
The railways of Scotland pass through some of the finest mountain vistas in Europe. The Scottish Highlands have a well-deserved reputation for jaw-dropping grandeur; the view from the Belmond Royal Scotsman is unparalleled.
The Belmond Royal Scotsman Exclusive Luxury Train only accommodates a maximum of 40 privileged guests per journey; the train has a crew of 20.
Open Observation Deck
The exclusive Belmond Royal Scotsman Luxury Train has the only open observation platform of any train on Europe's railways. It is a very special experience to be on the open observation deck as the Royal Scotsman crosses the famous Forth Bridge.
Spa & Beauty Salon
No other luxury train in Europe has on-board spa and beauty facilities. Bamford Haybarn Spa adds another layer of luxury to this jewel of a train. Please ask for further details.
Suite with Wheelchair Access
Unusually for luxury trains in Europe, the Belmond Royal Scotsman Exclusive Luxury Train has a twin-bed suite designed for disabled access, complete with wide-access shower. A suite with double bed is accessible through an adjoining door. The disabled access suite and the adjacent suite may be available for family travel. Here is further information about Belmond Royal Scotsman disabled access.
Whisky On Board - Over 60 Brands
The Bar has over 60 brands of whisky, and some 'cousins' - bourbons and Irish whiskeys; plus other drinks such as boutique gins and regular bar stocks. Drinks are included in your fare. We invite you to check if your favourite whisky is stocked.
Be drink aware.
The Belmond Royal Scotsman is designed as a Scottish country house in a train. It is therefore ideal for private charters by family or corporate groups. Our sister company Train Chartering is expert in the provision of private charters.
Whether you are a Scot by birth, genealogy or in your heart, why not consider a fine kilt and accessories when dining on the Royal Scotsman?
Edinburgh-based Kinloch Anderson, Kilt makers to HM The Queen, have a wide range of tartans and all the necessary paraphernalia. Guests can hire a kilt for their journey (delivered to and collected from the train) or to purchase their very own tailor-made Highland Dress.
Cross the Forth Bridge on the Open Deck, Belmond Royal Scotsman
The Forth Bridge is a cantilever railway bridge across the Firth of Forth in Scotland. It is a symbol of Scotland and UNESCO World Heritage Site, designed by English engineers Sir John Fowler and Sir Benjamin Baker. Opened 1890 by the future Edward VII. It is the world's second-longest single cantilever span (1,709 feet /521 m). Here is a short video of the crossing from the open observation deck.
