Departing Edinburgh, Scotland
While the New York Times sure likes the Caledonian Sleeper, an overnight train from London to Aberdeen, as a way to experience Scotland by rail, the Belmond Royal Scotsman is on a whole other level. This is absolute luxury train travel. Belmond offers several different trips, ranging from two to seven days, and including castles, countryside "sporting," private distillery tours and some of Scotland's most scenic splendors.
