Stirling Castle

Join us for this fabulous tour taking in the spectacular views along the East Coast Main Line as we travel north to Edinburgh and Stirling.The outward journey is hastened by heritage diesel traction before the return sees Tornado in charge of the train for the almost 250 mile journey south to York.

Starting from York, we head north to pick up passengers at Darlington before slowing for our Durham stop which affords wonderful views of the Norman Cathedral and the Castle. Continuing north we cross the Tyne and make our final pick up at Newcastle station. Our heritage diesel locomotive will then speed the train north with wonderful views of Lindisfarne and Alnmouth and the wider North Sea before we slow for the curved passage over the iconic Royal Border Bridge.

We soon pass into Scotland with the railway   running along the clifftops as we pass Grantshouse and Drem before travelling through the outskirts and on into the Scottish Capital. For those staying on board we head out west through Haymarket passing Murrayfield Stadium and on towards Linlithgow and Polmont where we diverge north and on to Stirling. The Wallace Monument and Castle are visible as we make our approach to the historic city. After a break of around three hours Tornado will be at the head of our train and will return us via the outward route.
