    Car Sharing

    If you would like to car-share for the journey north, or even if you just want to meet other group members to travel north together, you can coordinate travel plans with each other on our Facebook page. Click here to make plans!

    Travel by Train

    All of our guided group trips begin at railway stations as this makes it easier for you to travel to and from the start point in a sustainable manner.

    Most of our trips start at one of these railway stations: Inverness, Mallaig, Aviemore or Fort William. You can travel to these stations from Glasgow or Edinburgh. If travelling from Glasgow, be sure to check if your train departs from Queen Street Station or Central Station, as they are a 15 mins walk apart! For trips that start in Northern England York station is well served from both London and Edinburgh/Glasgow.

    It is normally possible to buy train tickets on the day without making a prior reservation. However, this can be more expensive than if you book in advance. For train timetables, costs and reservations, follow these links:

    If you are looking to bring your bike along with you, then trains are the best method of public transport and you will need to book your bike on board well in advance. Scotrail can be contacted on 08457 550 033 or from outwith the UK on 0044 1752 675 670.

    Travel by Bus

    It is also possible to travel to the start points of our trips by bus. The bus station is next to the railway station in each of these locations so is a convenient way to travel. Buses are generally less expensive than trains in the UK. For bus timetables, costs and reservations, follow this link:

    Travel by Car

    If you choose to travel by car, you will find details of long stay parking options within the trip dossier. If you require car hire then VroomVroomVroom offer an option to compare, book and save upon rental cars across the UK, including major airports and train stations. They guarantee the cheapest price as well. If you require help planning your route to Scotland, try www.theaa.com or Google Maps.

    If you need to fly to Scotland, Inverness is the most convenient airport for trips starting in the Highlands. Inverness Airport is located 10 miles east of the city centre, which can be reached by bus or taxi.
