FrontRunners: Railroad Crossing

    The Orient-Express company’s Royal Scotsman has offered luxury train itineraries through the Scottish Highlands for 25 years. This year, for the first time, the train will venture outside Scotland for its Grand Tour of Great Britain (www.orient-express.com). Highlights of the seven-night, $12,800-per-person trip, which departs from Edinburgh on July 9, include private tastings at Strathisla Distillery (maker of Chivas Regal); visits to the Alnwick, Conwy, and Gwydir castles; and dinner at chef Raymond Blanc’s Michelin-two-star Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, located outside Oxford.
