Overview

Declare your independence from rigid travel schedules that simply won’t bend. Now you can explore Scotland at your own pace with the versatile Britrail Spirit of Scotland Pass.

The rail pass provides unlimited train travel on Scotland’s rail network for either four or eight days to be used when you desire. So where to begin your journey ? Capital city Edinburgh is the obvious choice with its ancient churches and Victorian masterpieces (not to mention that Castle).

But perhaps a trip off-the-beaten path is more your bag, like the remote Scottish Highlands. Rugged and romantic, they represent one of Europe’s great wilderness areas. And no trip to Scotland is complete without an indulgence or two in Glasgow. It’s one of Britain’s liveliest cities, with excellent art galleries, and countless pubs and bars. Not sure where to travel next ? Then, when riding the rails, ask the locales. Scotland’s people are feisty, friendly—and opinionated.
