Following an early breakfast, we check out of our hotel. We travel by coach to Aviemore for a journey on the Strathspey Railway. We will board the maroon-liveried coaches which will evoke memories of train journeys in the 1950s and 60s and the train will be hauled by a lovingly restored steam locomotive from the collection which is housed in the engine shed adjacent to the station here. The line crosses heather covered moorland with the Cairngorm Mountains beyond, scenes which have changed little in the last hundred years. The train stops at Boat of Garten, a village created by the former railway companies that served the area and Broomhill, which doubled as „Glenbogle‟ in the popular BBC TV series, Monarch of the Glen. The train will then return to Aviemore, from where we continue our journey by coach to our accommodation in Inverness.
