Royal Scotsman, Great Britain

The Royal Scotsman’s State Cabins are Edwardian fantasies of varnished wood, polished brass, and fine fabrics. Windows open to let in the bracing Highlands air, and the train berths every night to ensure deep slumbers. Your cabin comes with all the tangibles: tartan décor, marquetry walls hung with old-fashioned prints, a dressing table, full-length wardrobe, and antique ceiling fans. Meanwhile, efficient and thoughtful service might include coffee with a touch of Baileys before bed or the day’s newspaper when you wake.

Deluxe Detail: New, fluffy white towels appear in your en suite bathroom daily.

Two-night trips through the Scottish Highlands start at $2,170 for single occupancy; $3,610 for double.
