Save up to £200 per couple on a Scottish Highlands tour by steam train


Relax in style and enjoy a ride on the famous Jacobite steam train through spectacular scenery on an incredible four-day tour of the Scottish Highlands. Subscribers can save up to £200 per couple with prices starting at £945 per person.

Steam locomotion has long been one of the most elegant and memorable ways to travel, and when mixed with the magnificent scenery of the Scottish  Highlands it makes for a trip of a lifetime. On this wonderful four-day holiday you will ride on the famous Jacobite steam train from Fort William to Mallaig, a 42-mile journey through spectacular scenery. 

Your trip starts near Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, passes Loch Monar, its deepest freshwater loch, and the River Morar, and then finally arrives beside the deepest seawater loch in Europe – Loch Nevis. You will then enjoy a relaxing voyage on the Firth of Clyde on the historic paddle steamer PS Waverley, which is the last of its kind. It was built in 1946 to replace the 1899 Waverley, which was sunk at Dunkirk, and is an impressive sight with its immense 2,100-horsepower steam engine. 

You’ll be staying at the four-star Airth Castle Hotel and Spa, central Scotland’s most exclusive retreat, with rooms available at a supplement in the original 14th-century castle itself, and over 14 acres of landscaped gardens to explore.
