Overview

The most northerly of the United Kingdom’s nations, Scotland is hugely varied for a country with a population of just five million.

Trains in Scotland are operated by companies such as First ScotRail, CrossCountry, First Transpennine Express, East Coast and Virgin Trains. Book train tickets to visit main cities of Scotland by train. Scottish cities including Edinburg, Glasgow and Inverness are all served by trains.

Cityscape

Two train stations serve Edinburgh, both with excellent facilities. In the capital you’ll find shopping, pampering and year-round festivals. From here take an East Coast train across Scotland to Aberdeen and visit the castles and museums that define a time gone by.

Landscape

Scotland’s award-winning West Highland train line reveals some fascinating sites. The Scottish Highlands are a haven for outdoor adventure; visit Inverness by train for adrenalin pumping outdoor adventure including paintballing and watersports. Scotland is widely regarded as a golf haven, so take your kit and enjoy the spectacular views as you tee off.

Take Home

Anything tartan! Scotland is proud of its print, and it’s everywhere from ribbons, to blankets and of course the infamous kilt – that will get the folk back at home talking. Glasgow has Scotland’s best shopping, so for the latest fashions and trendiest boutiques hop on the CrossCountry train from Edinburgh, you’ll be there in just over an hour.

Eat & Drink

Tuck into a traditional Burns Supper of haggis, turnips and mashed potato in Ayr and sample Cullen Skink fish and potato soup in the East Neuk of Fife. Visit Islay to sample some of the world’s peatiest whiskies.

New Perspective

Why not go all out and climb Ben Nevis? The summit is a mere 1,344 metres (4,409 ft) above sea level – just a stroll in the park!

    Tons of luggage but no space |
    "I had my very first experience with RAILeurope. It was easy to navigate at the train station with luggage and easy instruction by the information counter officer. However, had a lot of difficulty to carry out big luggage up to the train. We bought this big luggage because we were heading to london then to paris before we head home to Singapore. Lucky thing, we had a 63year old man in our tour group to help us load those luggage. And the best part was, the train manager in the coach was kind enough to give us the space to put our luggage at the side of their bar. Overall, it was satisfying experience, thank you train manager and RAILeurope. "

    My train tip in the British Is |
    "We thought the train service was incredible. The only negative was when you had to transfer from one train to another in a short period of time with luggage and all steps! There was no information on where to meet your transfer train. "

    It is Okay |
    "There is nothing special. It is punctual and relatively comfortable. However, I would hope when changing trains at Maninngtree, we do not need to go down to underpass and come up to another platform. It is really difficult when you travel with big suitcase. "

  • Comfortable journey |
    "The train journey was comfortable but the train platform no was announced at the very last moment on the Edinburgh Waverley station and it was quite a rush to board the train...n the seat numbers were not reserved on the coaches. The journey was on time n the train was clean and comfortable. "
