Tony Paul, LNER train driver said: “ I consider the Inverness to Edinburgh part of our route to be easily the most scenic and beautiful whatever the season.

“The climb out of Inverness to Culloden and onto the single line at Nairn Viaduct is one part of the route that’s a challenge I look forward to.
