Christian Dior’s love for Scotland — where he famously hosted his much-acclaimed fashion show in 1955 — has now come to life on the tracks.
All via the Dior Spa Royal Scotsman, a unique spa on rails, part of Belmond Trains new journeys including the adrenaline-filled Highland Survival Adventure with luxury adventure travel experts WILDNIS and A Taste of Scotland with Michelin-starred Chef Tom Kitchin taking guests on a gastronomic adventure through the country’s finest flavours.

Restyled with Dior’s iconic burgundy toile de Jouy motif, the Dior Spa Royal Scotsman will be a tranquil space to unwind as the train snakes its way through Scotland’s awe-inspiring peaks and dramatic valleys.
