Keith Dufftown Railway

The Dram Tram is back for The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival. Whisky has always had an important role in the history of the Keith Dufftown Railway, and this special journey in the hugely popular vintage whisky-themed train carriage, combines both. Tickets for the Dram Tram can be booked here.

Did you know that you can embark on regular journeys along the railway line though? With single fares starting at £5 and return journeys at £16, the service connects Keith and Dufftown, or in terms of distilleries, linking Balvenie, Glenfiddich, and Mortlach to Strathisla and Glen Keith and the main A96 road through to Elgin.

The KDR regular service will run from Friday 3rd May to Sunday 5th May.
