For Special Celebrations
For that extra special occasion, you and your guests can wine and dine in The Strathspey Railway’s exclusive Officer’s Saloon carriage. Enjoy a full three course meal in our beautifully maintained Gold Saloon, before moving through to the Platinum Saloon for a more intimate setting to enjoy some of the local area’s finest distilled malts and brewed ales.
Built in 1944, this special carriage was originally the district engineers personal saloon and was used for line inspections. Many of the original features of the Officer’s Saloon remain on board, with authentic pieces maintained in the Saloon today including original umbrella stands and coat hangers which really capture the vintage spirit of this carriage. Your dedicated guard, personal chef and waiting staff will accompany you – ensuring you and your guests’ every need is satisfied.
