Follow in the footsteps of Sir Walter Scott and Mary, Queen of Scots, and spend three nights aboard a luxury train.

Explore Scotland's most captivating and culturally vibrant regions -- from the medieval art and rare antiquities of Edinburgh Castle and the crown jewels of Mary, Queen of Scots, to the rugged coastlines and expansive country estates set in the breathtaking Scottish Highlands. Discover contemporary art at the Scottish Parliament Building and have cocktails in the private reception room of a Georgian-style townhouse. Gather for an exclusive tour, given by Lady Catherine Maxwell Stuart, of the home that has been in her family since 1491, and visit another, Abbotsford, owned by famed novelist, playwright and poet, Sir Walter Scott.

On board the Royal Scotsman, experience unparalleled panoramic landscapes, including the Isle of Skye. Stop at a Victorian Gothic house with a renowned private portrait collection, and travel to the legendary Glenfinnan Monument along the famous viaduct featured in the Harry Potter movies.

Optional postlude in Glasgow.
