    Broomhill StationLeaving Broomhill Station

    On leaving Aviemore, relax, enjoy a snack or a dram or simply view the heather moorland and the Cairngorm Mountain range from the carriage window; scenes almost unchanged in a hundred years. Arrive at Boat of Garten, a village created by the coming of the old railway companies that served the area. See the driver and fireman tend to their engine. They may take on water and the fireman will prepare his fire for the journey onto Broomhill known to many as Glenbogle from the BBC TV Series "Monarch of the Glen".
