SCOTLAND | Public Transport

Out with Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland is quite an expansive bit of land, featuring some of the remotest places in Europe, and many other cities and towns in the lowlands.

After Glasgow and Edinburgh, we have Aberdeen and Dundee, both sitting at around the 300,000 mark in population. Both have the historical legacy of an expansive tram network in the form of a modern bus network, mainly run by First, in Aberdeen, and National Express, in Dundee.

Stagecoach run services in most of the rest of Scotland's Unitary Council Areas. Like this one pictured in the city of Perth.


Ferries are an integral part of public transport in the countries Western Isles, and interchange with commuter rail in the Strathclyde/Greater Glasgow area is often achieved, like here at Wemyss Bay:


Ferry services in the Western Isles are operated by Caledonian MacBrayne ferries.


On Shetland, the buses are operated by Zettrans.

I recently caught the train from Glasgow to Edinburgh, what an amazingly crappy line, I expected a something a bit faster with more modern rolling stock than the very slow and very old trains on the line.

What line did you take? There are four between Glasgow and Edinburgh, the fastest being the route from Queen Street via Falkirk High at just over 45 minutes.

I think it was from Queen Street, the big station by the river.

Correct. Queen Street is nowhere near the river.
