It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience – riding through the breath taking, Scottish countryside while sitting in a carriage brimming with Edwardian elegance, taking in the most scenic, Celtic regions. A journey on the Belmond Royal Scotsman is the thing of dreams for many and, for those who are lucky enough to experience it, it’s a trip that they will never forget.
Aptly combining the rich and intriguing history of Scotland with a luxurious travel experience, the event is one that ought to be celebrated and marked in style. It is for that reason that The Royal Scotsman’s team offers guests a historic gift to take home with them courtesy of The Quaich Company. We are delighted to have handcrafted a piece that is certain to delight anyone who steps foot on board the train.
The ultimate celtic keepsake
When guests embark on a journey with the Royal Scotsman, they may be in for a small surprise towards the end of their trip. The team offers an exclusive gift on the last night of their stay – one of our pewter quaich bowls – the traditional, Scottish whisky cup, which we’ve expertly engraved with the Belmond crest.
The enchanting quaich was traditionally a whisky cup but over the years has transformed into a symbol of history, family, love, and kinship for those with Scottish roots or a Scottish connection. It has been created by none other than The Quaich Company; our online shop specialising in handcrafted Celtic gifts in pewter such as quaichs, flasks, tankards and goblets. The company was established in Glasgow over 50 years ago and is now run by us here at Wentworth Pewter.
Our craftsmen use traditional metalsmithing skills that have been kept alive for over five hundred years, and it’s fitting that they should hone pieces for a company steeped in heritage and elegance such as the Belmond Royal Scotsman.
We offer an in-house design service for unique pieces and special gifts for organisations, businesses and clubs that share our values in heritage and craftsmanship. We’ll go out of our way to deliver something beautiful and individual to mark your occasion.
