Established in 1985 by Great Scottish and Western Railway Co., The Royal Scotsman has become an exclusive way to experience the beauty of Scotland. In 2005 Belmond Ltd took over the running of the train and restored as well as upgraded the Pullman cars creating a stylish and luxurious country hotel on wheels.
The carefully selected colours, textures and fabrics reflect the colours of the Highlands while the carriages have a relaxed feel that envelops you in the warmth and wonder that is Scotland. With hints of rich purples to reflect the Scottish Thistle, warm earthy tones that reflect the colours of a fine rich whisky and gleaming lacquer polished to perfection provides an environment of both style and comfort. Christened in 2007 as the ‘Belmond Royal Scotsman’ the train and the railway experience lead the way when it comes sophisticated travel.
