About Us

Welcome to Scotland's Premier Heritage Railway in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

We welcome you aboard our vintage carriages hauled by our locomotives for a truly memorable trip through Britain's largest National Park - home of some spectacular scenery as well as natural and cultural heritage.

To make your special visit even more memorable, we have a host of excursions to offer, from exclusive dining experiences, to full day tours and activity packages, from private celebrations for two, to events for groups exceeding 100!

We are a not-for-profit Organisation.  Every visitor pound spent is invested into maintaining locomotives, (some of which are over 100 years old), ensuring that our Infrastructure (tracks, signals and stations) is maintained and other things function to permit us to operate cohesively.

We thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you aboard for a truly special trip between Aviemore, Boat of Garten and Broomhill!
