Boat of Garten

Join your onboard host for an invigorating early-morning walk over the bridge that links the mainland with the Isle of Skye. Depart from Kyle of Lochalsh as breakfast is served, retracing part of yesterday’s route. Travel around the edge of the Beauly Firth, across the northern end of the Caledonian Canal before reaching Inverness.

Disembark in Garve for a bespoke shopping experience at Campbell’s of Beauly retail emporium established in 1858. Alternatively, stretch your legs and join our Highland storyteller for a walk along the old military road leading to Silver Bridge. Lunch is served as the train departs Inverness en route to Carrbridge, where you disembark for an afternoon visit to Ballindalloch Castle, in the beautiful Speyside.

Visit Ballindalloch, one of Scotland’s most romantic castles. Take a tour of the building and grounds, or visit the castle’s single estate whisky distillery. Return to the train at Boat of Garten and prepare for an informal dinner. Afterwards, make your way to the Observation Car, where local musicians are waiting to entertain you as you sip a nightcap or two.
