The Lounge Observation Car and Bar

Soak up the spectacular scenery from the best vantage point.

Settle down in a comfortable sofa or armchair, or step out onto the open-air veranda as you glide past castles, villages and glens.

It’s the perfect place for an aperitif or after dinner drink.

The bar carries some 50 different types of Scottish whisky paying homage to the single malt, from the stronger west coast whiskies like Lagavulin, Talisker or Oban to the smoother eastern malts like Dalwhinnie.

This is the social hub of the train, located either at the rear or, for some parts of the trip, immediately behind the locomotive.

Passengers can sit back and enjoy the relaxed country-house atmosphere.

Reflecting this, the dress code on the train is smart casual throughout.
