Customer Reviews

Long but excellent day out to Edinburgh

This was an early Xmas present for my husband. The staff and service provided throughout was exceptional. The food which is cooked on board the train was very good...

Fantastic day out

Took Harry Potter mad daughter on this as a surprise, we were on the last one run of the season. Weather on the way out was lovely, so amazing views (stormy on the way back, so a bit intermittent)...

Fantastic and fun

I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, so I had to ride the steam train. The route was scenic and an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. Of course seeing the Glenfinnan viaduct was so cool...
