Rail passengers travelling in Scotland can now indulge themselves in locally sourced produce whilst they take in the breathtaking scenery.
ScotRail’s Great Scenic Tasting Box brings together a range of food and drink from throughout Scotland.
Passengers can choose a Great Glen charcuterie or cheddar and caramelised onion slices from the Scottish Borders.
Pate from West Lothian, Perthshire water, Moray oatcakes, Aberdeenshire crisps and chocolate, and Edinburgh shortbread provide a range of flavours from every corner of the country, and it can be washed down with a Glengoyne 10-year-old malt or Edinburgh gin and tonic.
A complimentary map and guide to the route is also included.
Great Scenic Tasting Boxes are available to buy at Glasgow Queen Street, Fort William and Inverness stations for £16, or two for £30.
What did the officials say?
ScotRail Tourism Manager Alasdair Smart said:
“The introduction of our Great Scenic Tasting Box allows customers to indulge in some of the finest Scottish produce while they take in the sights of the world’s most beautiful railway lines.
“We are making a major investment in Scotland’s rural railways. Our new and improved food and drink offering, refurbished trains, upgraded signalling equipment and installation of new customer information screens show our commitment to unlocking the potential of these scenic routes.”
National Trust for Scotland Director of Customer & Cause Mark Bishop said:
“From castles to coastlines, art to architecture, wildlife to wilderness, there is so much to explore and enjoy across Scotland.
“We hope that people are inspired to take to the train and experience what they love about Scotland.”
