Due to Covid-19, the Sleeping Car cannot operate as a bunkhouse while social distancing requirements are in place. From 17 May 2021, and until distancing restrictions have been lifted, the Sleeping Car will therefore be available for bookings of the whole carriage to single-household groups only. Pre-existing paid-up bunkhouse bookings will be honoured to the extent possible as per individual agreement.



The coach is part of the heritage rolling stock collection at Glenfinnan Station Museum. It was built in 1958 and retains many of its original features but has been converted by the Museum into unique and comfortable accommodation for up to 10 people.

It is an ideal base for reaching a number of tourist attractions by public transport, and forms an excellent centre for the mountains and glens of Lochaber, the Rough Bounds, Moidart and Ardgour.

Coach Facilities
