A Slow Summer with Belmond

A Slow Summer with Belmond

Join us on-board and allow Belmond Royal Scotsman to provide the ultimate slow escape. Leave the everyday behind and step into the Scottish Highlands, a magnificent adventure playground waiting to be explored. 

Tailor each day perfectly to you. Delve into the great outdoors with a guided mountain bike tour or a round of golf on a world famous course. Or, perhaps enjoy a calmer pace with a yoga class set in the rugged, yet mesmerising landscape. 

As you watch the summer sun set, indulge in a private outdoor dinner on the shores of a glistening Scottish loch, all before stargazing under some of Europe’s darkest skies with a personal astronomer to guide you.
