Leaving the Big Smoke and arriving in the fresh Highland air...

What an exciting and relaxing way to travel... I had my first experience on the Caledonian Sleeper last week and I think I'm hooked!

I jumped on the train at Euston station in the middle of busy, bustling London at 9.30pm, had a wee dram in the comfy Lounge Car before tucking myself up in bed for a great night's sleep, being gently rocked by the motion of the train and arrived into Aviemore in the heart of the glorious Cairngorms in time for breakfast.

It's not necessarily the cheapest way to travel and you do need to book very far in advance but in my view the experience makes it worthwhile. You can find out lots more and check availability on the Caledonian Sleeper website. They are upgrading their fleet at an expense of £150m in 2018, aptly calling it, 'The New Dawn of the New Sleeper'. I love it already so I can hardly wait for the new improved sleeper experience!
