Perhaps having an easy access luxury train suite is important to you.
Maybe you are a whisky connoisseur, or prepared to learn (be drink aware); in which case the Bar has over 60 brands.

The train departs from Edinburgh Waverley Station. Check-in is at least 40 minutes prior to departure at The Balmoral Hotel, after which the Host and Crew members will escort you onto the train. Luggage is taken for you.
Luggage and On-Board Storage
Cabins have limited space, therefore we recommend each guest travels with one suitcase and one carry-on bag. Twin State Cabins have storage space under each bed measuring 71cm x 23cm. If necessary, facilities are available at The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh for luggage storage during your journey. If you are staying at another hotel, please ask the Hotel Manager. Prior to boarding, please attach a Belmond The Royal Scotsman luggage label/tag to each piece of your luggage.
For daytime excursions and relaxing on board, we recommend casual, comfortable clothing. In the evening we recommend a jacket and tie for informal dinners and black tie/tuxedo or kilt for formal dinners.
There are electrical outlets in all cabins. Electricity in the UK runs on 220/240 volts. You may wish to bring an adaptor for electrical appliances.
On the final night of your journey, Belmond Royal Scotsman crew can reserve taxis/limousines for onwards transfers, for example to the airport or your hotel. Please speak to the Train Manager.
