BritRail Central Scotland Pass
Second Class to First Class Scottish Culture
Looking to save some quid on your trip to Scotland? Save your money for a tartan, a taste of fine whiskey, searching for Sean Connery. Head to Central Scotland on the cheap with the BritRail Central Scotland Pass™. You’ll see the elegant capital of Edinburgh, grittier Glasgow and points in between.
Rail travel throughout Scotland isn’t just a means of excellent transport, it’s also part of the experience. That’s because Scotland’s railways are as classic and traditional as a plate of haggis. As a matter of fact, its Glasgow Underground first opened in 1896, making it the world’s third oldest subway system (albeit, now updated. We promise you won’t be on some rickety rail track.)
With the flexibility of the Pass, you’ll receive unlimited rail travel through the major stops in Central Scotland. You can travel on the Underground, ScotRail, Great North Eastern Railway and more. And your pass is valid for three days within a week’s period. See everything from castles and chapels to universities and underwear-less men donning their family’s tartans.
This pass truly is culture Central.
Here’s what you get:
- Unlimited train travel between Edinburgh, Glasgow, Queen Street, North Berwick, Bathgate, Dunblane, Bridge of Allen, Stilling, the Fife Circle, Markinch, Falkirk and all intermediate stations.
- 3 days of unlimited train travel within a 7-day period.
- Travel days may be used consecutively or non-consecutively.
