Heritage Railway journey Aviemore, Boat of Garten and Broomhill

Travel back in time when you book a nostalgic train journey on our heritage railway. The return trip is just under two hours, departing Aviemore and visiting Boat of Garten and Broomhill stations. Steam or Heritage Diesel depending on day of travel.

Step aboard at Platform 3, Aviemore station. The heritage train then travels to Boat of Garten and on to Broomhill (also known as "Glenbogle" station from the ever-popular Monarch of the Glen TV series), the railway takes you on a twenty-mile round trip along part of the original Highland Railway mainline. As the train passes moorland, through woods and alongside the meandering River Spey, the stunning Cairngorm Mountains scenery is ever present. Experience a "Brief Encounter" with a bygone age of rail travel, while visiting our beautifully restored railway stations.

New for our 2023 season, is the return of the Coronation Observation Carriage to the Scottish Highlands. This 1930s glass end carriage, features Art Deco interior styling, a magnificent wood-panelled entrance, and large armchairs which allow you to relax in comfort as you view the magnificent Speyside scenery passing by.
