Tee off with The Royal Scotsman Golf Tour

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014 3:03 pm by .

The UK’s only luxury sleeper train, The Royal Scotsman, has launched The Golf Tour; a five day journey exploring Scotland’s famed golf courses. Departing from Edinburgh on 18th May and 22nd September 2014, the train will travel through the Scottish Highlands, transporting guests seamlessly between the world class courses, in the height of luxury.

En route, golfers will tee off at three of the region’s most prestigious courses, all boasting impressive scenic views and challenging holes. Guests will be escorted to The Royal Dornoch, the most northerly of the UK’s championship courses, Castle Stuart Golf Links, the host venue of the Scottish Open for the past three years, and finally Cruden Bay Golf Club, designed by golfing legend Tom Morris. Lunch at the courses, as well as green fees and pull cart hire are all included for players, whilst golf club hire and caddies can also be arranged. Those wishing to follow in The Ryder Cup’s footsteps can arrange a night’s stay at The Gleneagles Hotel and Spa, home of this year’s competition, before the May departure.

The Royal Scotsman is often referred to as ‘a country house on wheels’, and accommodates just 36 guests in Edwardian style carriages. Those on board sleep in exquisitely appointed en-suite cabins and enjoy a personal steward service throughout their stay. Fine cuisine is created at every meal by the on board Michelin standard chef, whose authentic Scottish dishes complement the highland experience. The observation car, with its open veranda and comfortable interior seating, provides the ideal spot to take in the passing landmarks such as the Kyle of Lochalsh and Cairngorms National Park, whilst sampling Scottish whiskies from the bar.

Prices for The Golf Tour, on board The Royal Scotsman, start from £5,350 per person. This is based on two people sharing a twin cabin on a fully inclusive basis, including green fees and pull cart hire. Golf clubs can be hired on request and caddies arranged. For an extra £500 supplement a one night stay at The Gleneagles Hotel and Spa can be booked prior to the May departure.
