• Experience a thrilling train ride though Scotland

    2012-02-15

    Taking a relaxing train ride though the countryside may not be a top priority while on vacation for many travelers, but it should be considered a great way to experience local culture and scenic landscapes. For instance, if baby boomers are planning on a trip to the U.K., they could take a ride on the West Highland Line, which ventures from the west coast of Scotland to the stunning city of Glasgow.

    According to Travel and Leisure, the views that speed by the train windows alone are worth the trip alone, as it offers a quick glimpse of some of the country's prettiest castles, moors and glens. The spring season offers wonderful vistas of landscapes covered in flowers and greenery as well.

    While in Glasgow, travelers will have a wealth of cultural landmarks and entertainment options to enjoy. Frommer's reports that a visit to The Burrell Collection is a must, as this complex boasts over 9,000 pieces of art and artifacts that once belonged to ship owner Sir William Burren. The eclectic assortment includes things like European decorations, ancient weaponry and stained glass.
