    Welcome aboard The Strathspey Railway for an exciting experience at the heart of the Scottish Highlandsw! A wondrously stunning trip awaits to take you through the Cairngorms National Park - the home of Britain's highest mountain range and an area of outstanding natural beauty boasting an impressive culture and heritage.

    You will be taken back in time to a ten mile long 1950s branchline between Aviemore, Boat of Garten and Broomhill where, remarkably, little has changed since since 1863 when the Victorians brought a railway to this splendid area of the Highlands.
