Inveraray Castle


The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

Inveraray Castle is the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell and the iconic, must-see attraction on the West Coast of Scotland.

The adventure begins as you step aboard the elegant carriages of the Northern Belle and you are escorted to your plush seat by an attentive steward. Your table is set with pristine white linen, bespoke silverware and sparkling glassware, ready for a fine dining experience.

A sparkling Bellini cocktail is served, followed by a three-course brunch. As you relax and enjoy the journey, take time to admire the exquisite details of your carriage, whose opulent furnishings and craftsmanship evoke the glamour of 1930s “Belle” trains.

Enjoy the views through your window as the train makes its way north to Arrochar on the West Coast Highland Line. Soak up the splendid scenery and the ever-changing vistas on this spectacular rail journey.

Enjoy an afternoon exploring West Scotland’s most iconic and beautiful castle. Sitting proud on the banks of Loch Fyne and nestled in an area of outstanding beauty, this is the perfect setting for a perfect day.
Inveraray Castle boasts an abundance of lavishly-decorated rooms and acres of stunning gardens. It is no surprise that this was chosen as a filming location for the BBC hit drama Downton Abbey.
After your afternoon’s sightseeing, return to the train for a champagne reception on board and settle back into your seat. A sumptuous five-course dinner, accompanied by our sommelier’s selection of wine, is served as we wend our way home.
