A taste or Cornwall staying inland at Lanhydrock and at the coast at Tregenna Castle Resort, exploring Cape Cornwall, one of the backdrops for Poldark, and the scenic branch lines unspoiled by the modern world, not forgetting the Eden Project and a touch of steam nostalgia.
A seven day hop around the Highlands and Inner Hebrides, see Arran or 'Scotland in Miniature', the Mull of Kintyre, Islay, Mull, Iona and Skye on this tour to the unspoilt isles off the Scottish coast. That's not all though, as we also feature the West Highland Railway.
