bespoke train and sporting itineraries for adventurous groupsWith access to some of the most spectacular natural sporting playgrounds in the UK, Belmond Royal Scotsman launches ‘Action Stations’, private charters and bespoke itineraries for groups, combining slow luxury train travel through the Scottish Highlands and beyond, with a series of thrilling and adventurous off board excursions.
The ‘Action Stations’ bespoke itineraries are tailor made and designed to inspire productivity and invigorate employees by reconnecting them with nature and the great outdoors.
A choice of one night to week long overnight charters departing from Edinburgh can include such off board sporting activities and day excursions as white water rafting, climbing, abseiling, canoeing, canyoning, mountain biking, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking, river fishing and horse riding. ‘Bridge swinging’, segwaying and ascending Scotland’s third highest waterfall are also available near Fort William and Glencoe.
After an action packed day, Belmond Royal Scotsman offers up to 36 passengers levels of comfort and luxury akin to that of a country house. Specially designed menus using seasonal Scottish fare, exceptional personal steward service and beautifully appointed Edwardian-style en-suite cabin accommodation help to create an unrivalled working and social environment.
The beautiful wood-panelled Raven restaurant car can be transformed during the day into a conference and meeting space for up to 20 delegates. No other meeting room in the world can boast scenic views of the Scottish Highlands whilst also offering modern plasma, audio and visual facilities. There is no better place to retire after a hard day’s work than the Observation Car, where tales of the trip can be shared over a dram or two from a choice of over 50 whisky varieties.
All sporting activities and day excursions are seamlessly arranged to work around the requirements of each group and itineraries can be prepared to include down time, authentic music performances and entertainment on board, plus private visits to famous estates, castles, clans and whisky distilleries.
