The Strathspey Railway offers a range of trips, experiences, special events and tours aboard our steam and vintage diesel trains in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

Taking you through the stunning Cairngorms National Park, we have stations at Aviemore, Boat of Garten and Broomhill.

With a leisurely 15 minute trip between each station, you can split your journey up to explore each location further, or remain on board for a full 90 minute trip – taking you on a 20 mile round tour of this very special area.

Leaving from Aviemore you can relax, enjoy a snack or a dram or simply view the heather moorland and the Cairngorm Mountain range from the carriage window; scenes almost unchanged in a hundred years. Arrive at Boat of Garten, a village created by the coming of the old railway companies that served the area. See the driver and fireman tend to their engine. They may take on water and the fireman will prepare his fire for the journey onto Broomhill known to many as Glenbogle from the BBC TV Series Monarch of the Glen.

The Strathspey area strictly speaking includes the whole Spey valley as it runs North-East From the North-west corner of the Cairngorms through the whisky trail towns of Aberlour and Fochabers. However the classicly beautiful and most commonly visited part of Strathspey is the area from Aviemore through Grantown-on-Spey and Boat of Garden. David Attenborough described this part of Scotland as one of his favourite parts of the world.
