Make a special trip to the Speyside Whiskey Festival in the Malt Whisky Capital of Scotland even more extraordinary by making your base at Leslie Castle and using Britain’s most northerly heritage railway to get there.
You will pass some of the best scenery to be had in this part of Scotland on the way. 10 minutes from Leslie Castle is Insch railway station, with regular links to Keith station (see The Trainline timetable) where the Keith & Dufftown light railway starts.
Scheduled services for 2018 start on Friday 30th March and will end on Sunday 30th September 2018. But on the 3rd to 6th May a special service runs in conjunction with Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival and free whisky sampling and shortbread will be available on the trains.
