See Scotland by train

Last updated: Friday, 4 August 2023

Travelling by train is very much like having your own window onto Scotland’s scenic beauty.

Come rain or shine you’ll be warm (or cool) and dry, and comfortable. You’ll have time to catch up on some reading, let friends know what you’re up to, or enjoy a snack or a snooze. And when you reach your destination you’ll be relaxed and ready to go. Not searching endlessly for a parking spot.

That’s what you can expect with a ScotRail travel pass — all the gain and none of the pain. Whether you’re travelling for one day or several, heading north, south, east or west, there’s a pass that gives you unlimited travel on your chosen route. Ready for mountains and lochs, nature and outdoors, fabulous meals or fun with the kids? Then you’re ready for a ScotRail travel pass.
