Royal Scotsman train sets '99 trips

OAK BROOK, Ill. -- Abercrombie & Kent, based here, released its 1999 Royal Scotsman brochure, featuring a range of itinerary options beginning in April.

The Royal Scotsman is a luxury train with an Edwardian-era ambience. The train accommodates 36 passengers and has two dining cars and one observation car. Its four-night Scotland tour, priced at $4,150 per person, double or single, begins and ends in Edinburgh.

Sightseeing along the way includes Ballindalloch Castle, the Highland Wildlife Park and Eilean Donan, the castle used in the film "Highlander."

The trip includes a visit to the Isle of Skye, where a cookery demonstration is held in Kinloch Lodge. It also features a visit to a whisky distillery.

The five-night Grand Tour is priced at $5,250 per person, double or single. >Its itinerary follows the Scotland tour, with the extra night spent traveling between Edinburgh and London.

Clients choose where to begin their trip. For example, the Grand Tour North travels from London to Edinburgh and then picks up the Scotland tour itinerary.

The Grand Tour South departs from Edinburgh, follows the Scotland tour then continues to London. The price covers one cabin with private facilities; all meals and beverages, including wine and other alcoholic drinks; taxes, and scheduled sightseeing excursions.

For passengers who opt to add a hotel stay in either London or Edinburgh, the A&K brochure recommends the Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh, or the Goring Hotel, London.
