Scotland Luxury Travel by Train and Sea Cruise
Scotland is probably not usually associated with luxury..
Wild landscapes maybe, dark mysterious lochs as deep as the mountains are high, majestic mountains....
Makes you think of... mountaineering, rockclimbing, camping..becoming one with nature..and that surely is exhilarating...
But some folks enjoy Luxury..
What if you could enjoy all this rugged landscape AND still luxuriate..now that would be perfect!
Scotland now offers the visitor several ways to do just that.
From land or sea...from a very special train..or an exceptional cruise ship..no matter what the weather, you can see the best of scenic Scotland - in luxury...
