Scottish Tours, the on-line Scotland travel marketplace, have launched a magical 5-day short break from London which includes a memorable trip aboard the Jacobite Steam Train, the real Hogwarts Express! Operating from May to September 2020 this 5 day/4 night package includes return rail travel from London to Scotland travelling the route of the famous Flying Scotsman aboard a state-of-the-art Azuma express train.
In Edinburgh, Scotland’s historic capital city, there’s a hop-on, hop-off tour included which will introduce travellers to all the key sights including Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyroodhouse plus the Old and New Towns, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Comfortable superior tourist-class accommodation with breakfast is featured in Edinburgh (1 night) and Inverness (3 nights).
Sightseeing includes a wonderful excursion from Edinburgh to Inverness which includes dramatic landscapes such as Glen Coe and Rannoch Moor; sparkling lochs including mysterious Loch Ness where’s there’s chance to take a monster-spotting cruise!
From Inverness, the principal city of the Scottish Highlands, there are two fabulous excursions. The first takes in the beautiful Isle of Skye and iconic Eilean Donan Castle. On the itinerary are the towering Cuillin mountains; the strange landscapes of the Trotternish Peninsula and delightful Portree, the island’s main town.
The second excursion is undoubtedly the highlight of the tour which is a one-way trip on the Jacobite Steam Train which featured as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter movies. During the 42 mile journey from Mallaig to Fort William see Britain’s tallest mountain, Ben Nevis; deepest Loch, Loch Morar and shortest river, River Morar. Not to be missed is the crossing of the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct, just like in the Harry Potter movies. It’s no wonder that Wanderlust magazine called this “The Greatest Railway Journey in the World”.
