Now that much of Scotland has moved to Level 2 coronavirus restrictions it’s possible to go away for a break with up to six people from three different households.

Hop aboard the carriage for a Level 2-compliant holiday for up to six people in the Dumfries and Galloway countryside.

The first trip away with family and friends should be pretty special – and this first class converted train carriage will make it all the more memorable.

The Carriage, a former working 1957 railway car, is set in a tranquil Dumfries and Galloway country setting that was once the Bridge of Dee station, near the historic Scottish town of Castle Douglas
