Luxury Scottish Highlands train unveils stunning new suites
It’s already one of the most luxurious locomotives around, and The Royal Scotsman Belmond is about to get even more glamorous with the launch of two beautiful new suites.
Designed by Paris-based interior designer Tristan Auer, the suites have been devised in the style of a grand country house, complete with classic nods to Scottish culture. They’re due to be introduced on famous train in May 2024.
The elegant interior includes handcrafted wall-coverings and upholstery that reflect the rich colors of the landscape of the Scottish Highlands, as well as dark wooden wall paneling embellished with elaborate marquetry.
Travelers who book the two-night Highland Journey in a Grand Suite, at a cost of around $7,212 per person for an all-inclusive stay, will benefit from private transfers to and from their hotel or airport, as well as one treatment per person in the famous train’s moving spa – the only one of its kind in Europe.
The train’s on board bar also happens to be stocked with more than 50 types of whisky, while the journey itself includes visits to distilleries, excursions to castles and wild swimming and foraging.
