For a stunning day in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, join The Strathspey Railway. Our steam services take you through the stunning Cairngorms National Park with a host of experiences on offer to make your day extra special!
Welcome aboard The Strathspey Railway for an exciting experience at the heart of the Scottish Highlands! 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.
We have a host of special experiences awaiting you, your family and guests. Join us for:
