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!

    Simplify your trip |
    "Our trip to Gatwick was simplified by pre-purchasing our tickets through Rail Europe. For the traveller negotiating new places it's a relief not to have to sort through your travel options on the day. We knew we weren't going to be in a hurry if all our plans worked out and so it was that we had time to catch up on reading at Victoria Station and on the train to Gatwick that took about the same time as we'd expect on the journey to Sydney Airport by train for about the same cost.

    Save time and no distress |
    "After driving from Manchester to London 2 days earlier and taking nearly 6 hours , with major traffic problems, what a relief to be able to get to Manchester from London in just over 2 hours, no stress, no worries. We had booked tickets for a football game at Etihad Stadium and had a lovely relaxing day, why, because we caught the train. I wish we had a train service in Australia this good. "

  • Great trip to see friends |

    "We found the trip that we took was comfortable, on time and plenty of space for our luggage. The beverage cart was consistent too. Thank You "

  • London to Bristol/Yatton |
    "Ticket collection in UK straight forward from machine though had to try twice as machine link to server was down. Train ontime and comfortable. Seat reservation was on seat. Nearest toilet on train was out of order but otherwise what you expect of a train journey! "

  • Trip to Manchester |
    "it was very good but probebly becuse of the football game the train was overbook "

  • UK trains |
    "Booked first class ticket and ended up with exactly the same level of service as standard class. Waste of money and unlikely to travel with this service again. Interior of cabin was poor and seats wouldn't recline. "

  • reasonable price |
    "I checked other ticketing websites, but you made me save much money. And when I was in small ticketing trouble in London because I brought a new card whose expire date has been renewed, one lady telephone operator was very kind to respond quickly and explain me how to get tickets actually. Thanks to her, I was able to got all of tickets smoothly. "
