Sports fans have a lot to look forward to year-round in Scotland.

Here we'll pick out some of the very top events currently on the horizon, with tips on reaching them by train.

Our top tips for travelling to events:

  1. Buy your ticket before you board. You’ll need a valid ticket for travel, and checks will be in place at many stations.
  2. Check your train times. Remember to leave time to catch any connecting services that you need.
  3. Listen up! We’ll have extra staff on the ground to help things go smoothly. To help them help you, please listen to their instructions.
  4. Download the ScotRail app. You can use it to buy tickets, check train times, and see live service information.
  5. Don’t leave it too late – services will be busy, and you might not be able to board your first choice of train.

Nearest stations:

Dalmarnock: for Glasgow Central, Motherwell, and Lanark.

Bellgrove: for Glasgow Queen Street, Airdrie, Cumbernauld, and Edinburgh Waverley.

We're looking forward to helping football fans travel to Celtic Park on Sunday, 31 July, to see Celtic and Aberdeen in their first game of the new Cinch Premiership season.

To help you get to and from the match, we'll be adding extra carriages to trains calling at Bellgrove, however, due to the later than normal kick-off at 4.30pm, there will be no trains from Dalmarnock station after the final whistle as part of our normal Sunday timetable. You can travel from Bellgrove back to Glasgow Queen Street.

Queuing systems may be in place at Bellgrove station on your journey home.

To reduce the need to queue, we'd encourage you to buy your return ticket in advance via the mTicket system on the ScotRail app.

Buying tickets through the mTickets system means you can buy your tickets from the comfort of your home or on the way to the station and it will instantly become available on your mobile device.

We'll have staff at the station to help you, and please remember that the carrying and consumption of alcohol is prohibited on our trains and in our stations.

We'll be doing everything we can to help you travel to the Women's Open at Muirfield between Thursday, 4 August and Sunday, 7 August.

If you're heading to the Championship, please plan your journey in advance and leave extra time for travel as services between Edinburgh and North Berwick will be busy.

A shuttle bus service will be waiting for you at Longniddry to transport you between the station and the golf course.

Please note there will be no transport provided to take you from Drem or North Berwick to the course.

Queuing systems may be in place at Edinburgh Waverley on your way to the event, and at Longniddry on the way home. To reduce your need to queue, we'd encourage you to buy your return ticket to Longniddry in advance via the mTicket system on the ScotRail app.
