Later this year, golfers will have the opportunity to explore Scotland in a way that will make any other golf travel aficionado green with envy. The Orient Express continues to offer some of the most unique and inventive train travel journeys, and the Golf Tour will be no different.

The Royal Scotsman offers one of the most intimately personal train options today with only 36 guests, but an endless number of amenities. Always a favorite place to meet, the observation car has something to offer everyone – comfortable sofas and armchairs while watching the tranquil Scottish countryside glide past, or the open-air views on the veranda are unbeatable. Each sleeper cabin is lined with rich marquetry and includes a private bath and an exclusive luxury train travel opportunity that takes you back in time.

Just announced are two opportunities later this year when you can enjoy a five-day golf journey through the Scottish Highlands onboard The Royal Scotsman to enjoy world-class golf and the ultimate in luxury rail travel (Classic Scottish Golf Tour). Departing from Edinburgh on May 18, 2014 and then again on September 22, 2014, golfers have two opportunities to tee it up in style.

Beyond the luxury cabins, delicious cuisine and a priceless train travel experience, this tour also offers exclusive access to three of the region’s most prestigious courses, all boasting impressive scenic views and challenging holes. Green fees and lunch are both included while you play in the lands where golf was born. An added bonus can also be arranged for those wishing to have the Ryder Cup experience with a stay at The Gleneagles Hotel and Spa before the May departure.

Courses Include The Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart Golf Links and Cruden Bay Golf Club, which all offer a challenge to the most seasoned golfer. For golfers looking to sit back and savor the scenery while enjoying an Edwardian style train adventure, paired with world-class golf at several of the most sought-after courses in Scotland, then this journey is for you.
