Top Ten United Kingdom Classic Adventures

Ride the Royal Scotsman
  |  Gorp.com

What's the best way to see Scotland's rugged natural beauty without getting out of your chair? Enjoy panoramic views while lounging comfortably in the Observation Car of the Royal Scotsman, a luxurious 36-passenger train that sweeps across a landscape of great glens, lochs, and waterfalls. Along the way you'll have opportunities to disembark and try your hand at a variety of activities, from shooting clay pigeons to wildlife viewing in the Highland Wildlife Park to traditional Scottish dancing. The biggest thrill? Kilts are recommended wear for gentlemen in the dining car.
