To celebrate Homecoming Scotland 2014, when Scotland will be hosting more than 630 events, this joint venture invites visitors to indulge in first-class 1950s travel on board a vintage steam engine, followed by a bespoke tour of the Highlands in a classic car. The tour is available from spring until early winter.
After a train journey from Aviemore to Broomhill, visitors can hit the open road, stopping off at distilleries, woollen mills or a fine dining experience at the UK’s highest restaurant at the Cairngorms Mountain.
"The whole country is preparing to welcome the world to Scotland throughout this monumental year and we wanted to make sure that visitors would be able to join us in the Highlands for an unforgettable tour and to explore this glorious countryside in a way like no other," said Deborah Quinn, marketing officer at Strathspey Railway.
Neil Brownlee, head of VisitScotland’s Business Tourism Unit, added: "There can be few places in the world more inspiring than a trip to the Scottish Highlands. Scotland has so much to offer visitors whether on business or leisure and the Highlands, with its great natural beauty and outdoor incentives, is growing ever more popular with delegates looking for a destination to extend their trip after an event or conference."
