All Aboard: Belmond Royal Scotsman Debuts First Spa Carriage

Bamford and Belmond come together aboard the Royal Scotsman with the launch of a slick new spa carriage 

Relaxing by rail just got even better onboard the Belmond Royal Scotsman. The luxury train has launched a new spa carriage in partnership with the Bamford Haybarn Spa, featuring bespoke Bamford treatments for passengers travelling on overnight rail journeys through Scotland and Great Britain. 

It is the first spa carriage within Belmond’s portfolio of luxury trains and features two treatment rooms with picture windows offering scenic views of Scotland. Menu highlights include the Bamford Bespoke Facial, which is a rejuvenating treatment that incorporates facial reflexology, lymphatic drainage and a hot stones back massage; the Bamford deep tissue massage; manicures and pedicures using eco-natural Kure Bazaar nail polishes.

Referred to as a ‘country house on wheels’, Belmond Royal Scotsman offers two different seven-night itineraries departing from Edinburgh and travelling across the Scottish highlands, embracing sweeping glens, historic lochs and towering peaks. Onboard, unwind and enjoy wood-paneled, en-suite cabins; a personal steward service and opulent dining cars decked out with tasteful tartan trimmings, alongside forever-flowing champagne, an on-board Whisky Advisor and enchanting views of the Scottish countryside.
