Take the train … and head to the Highlands
The royals might be heading for the Highlands, but you can enjoy a highland fling for less with cheap trains to Scotland…
Her Maj, Charles, Camilla, Wills and Kate are all set to bolt to Balmoral and enjoy a highland fling this summer.
And it’s not just royalty who are headed for Scotland’s greenest spots, as the Daily Mail’s travel expert Max Hastings says the Highlands are great for families looking for a summer adventure.
In fact, Hastings says going to the Scottish Highlands is like going to Cornwall – without the crowds.
The Highlands, he says, are perfect for camping, walking, fishing, barbecues and frolicking by unspoilt beaches.
“Almost every child loves camp cooking and portable barbecues, messing about in boats in the approved manner of Ratty and Mole, and climbing hills,” he said.
What’s more, the Highlands are easy reached by trains.
Instead of taking the car and clocking up miles and petrol, families can easy take the train to Aberdeen or Inverness – often called the capital of the Highlands – and then take a bus or hire car to Scotland’s remote lochs and hillsides.
