Tourism and Trains

Scottish scenic lines such as the West Highland Line are impressive feats of engineering through world-class scenery. Great rail journeys like the Jacobite steam train (seen right on the Glenfinnan viaduct) are major tourist attractions.

SAPT welcomes Abellio’s plans to introduce upgraded tourist trains on the West Highland, Kyle, Far North, Stranraer and Borders lines. This is an opportunity to develop inclusive tours combining ferry and coach connections with scenic rail journeys to boost tourism.
