Via Inverness, Aldourie Castle is accessible from most major UK and European cities and there is even the option to travel by steam train on the marvellous Caledonian Sleeper, which offers fantastic views of the Scottish countryside and highlands – travelling through the Ski resort of Aviemore and Gleneagles, “Famous for its golf course”.
