The Royal Scotsman

Client: Orient Express Hotels, Trains and Cruises

Project: The Royal Scotsman

Launch: 1985


A journey on board The Royal Scotsman takes guests along the edges of lochs through mountainous countryside and forests, straight to the heart of the Scottish Highlands. The train accommodates 36 guests in 16 twin and 4 single State cabins, and has two dining cars and an observation carriage.

JPA delivered the interior design and specification for the entire train as well as having inputs on branding and livery design. The interiors are beautifully fitted out with rich marquetry and wood panelling in an Edwardian style and the furnishings adopt the style of traditional countryside with Scottish tartan patterns. The result is a luxurious, stylish and intimate interior in which guests can enjoy an authentic Highland experience.
