Highland Dress Aboard A Highland Train

How’s this for a souvenir of a trip to the Scottish Highlands – a kilt or other tartan apparel handmade for you by the Queen of England’s own kilt-maker.

This is a new service offered by the Royal Scotsman, a luxurious Edwardian-style train that travels by the pristine lochs, rugged castles, cascading waterfalls and rolling hills of Scotland’s scenic Highlands.

Before boarding the train, an expert tailor from Kinloch Anderson will fit you for the tartan outfit of your choosing – a kilt, argyle-cut jacket and/or tartan trousers or waistcoat (vest) for men and “Highland Fling” long skirt or A-line “tea” skirt for women – and deliver them to your home address within 8-10 weeks. Of course, you can’t be caught on this Orient-Express-run train without your Scottish formalwear, so Kinloch Anderson will lend you a set of Highland Dress for formal evenings on the train.

Once your kilt is fitted, relax and enjoy the train’s gourmet dining, unlimited fine wines and wee drams and the convivial atmosphere of celebrating with friends. Along the way, wander through charming villages, tour historic castles and discover exquisite botanical gardens.  Come join the fun!
