Strathspey Steam Railway, Aviemore to Boat of Garten

No one can resist the romance of steam and, even though the journey was considerably harder then, the Strathspey Railway between Aviemore and Boat of Garten gives a taste of how the journey to the north was in the days when Aviemore was a hub of railway activity. Arrive at Boat of Garten, a village created by the coming of the old railway companies that served the area. See the driver and fireman tend to their engine and prepare for the journey onto Broomhill near Nethybridge, known to many as Glenbogle from the BBC TV Series "Monarch of the Glen". Kids even get to meet Thomas the Tank Engine in July of this year. Boat of Garten and Broomhill stations provide access to the Abernethy Forest trails and to the Speyside Way on special days.
