ALL ABOUT US

The WhestRail Team has over 250 years of Railway Interest and Tourism knowledge between them making it a formidable organisation.

More importantly is the real passion to make a difference in the West Highlands when linking Trains to Tourism by constant appraisal of market conditions and demands coupled to the desire to create change rather than be a passive bureaucratic organisation. The area deserves an organisation which is dedicated to its promotion and use with rail access to the forefront.

WhestRail want the experience of a journey in the Highlands to be a memorable one in high quality trains with good old fashioned values of service, care and good Scottish food and accommodation from our business partners.

The WhestRail culture is one of listening to its partners and members therefore never being too reluctant to make positive change for the benefit of everyone. We want you to interact with us and build up a Railway & Tourist Community Website which will be the envy of all.

WhestRail will achieve this by close liaison with its members and offer the following products and services in the future listed below:

  • A real train linking the Scottish Capital to the West Highland Capital at weekends and special occasions Edinburgh – Fort William as we once knew it
  • A vibrant interactive website for news and tourism offers in the Highlands and West Highlands
  • The introduction of a WhestRail Community Club for Business and Private Members
  • A WhestRail steam locomotive hauled train from Edinburgh to Fort William and Mallaig or Inverness to Kyle and Helmsdale at various times during the year with superb on board service and a variety of innovative activity offers en route
  • An on train Courier Service by our friendly trained staff and a route description by notable Historians
  • The introduction of a Dine on the Line eating experience
  • Rail travel offers in conjunction with other Rail Travel Operators such as West Coast Railways and ScotRail
