Glasgow to Edinburgh?

by schmechi

What is the best way to get from Glasgow to Edinburgh via public transport?
Are there any sights on the track, which would be worth to be visited or even to make a detour?

Re: Glasgow to Edinburgh?

by Lyndra

Hi there, it is quite a short journey and train is a viable option if you are not driving. There are many each hour going between the two cities.

Re: Glasgow to Edinburgh?

by iaint

trains every 15 minutes during the day - journey time about 50 minutes

frequent express buses - probably cheaper, but a bit slower

Linlithgow is worth stopping at, for the Palace.

Re: Glasgow to Edinburgh?

CityLink Buses go every 20 minutes from the Buchanan Street Bus Station - fares can be as low as £1 if booked on line, up to £4 one way (I think) slightly less than double for a return fare. You can travel on any bus, except with the £1 fares you must take a specified bus. Journey takes from 45 minutes to 50 minutes in rush hour.
There's another bus line that goes from the bus station - red buses but the name escapes me - the journey takes longer and the fare is about £2.
Trains leave every 15 minutes from Queen Street Station. Cost, last time I looked, was £11+ for a day return (and you cannot travel on a train between 16.30 and 18.00 or before 9.30))
If you wanted to go to Linlithgow, then you would have to take another bus to Linlithgow, as the Glasgow-Edinburgh bus does not go via Linlithgow but goes on the motorway the whole way.
The buses terminate at the bus station which is just slightly off Princes Street. However, there are stops at Haymarket Station, Shandwick Place, and if you ask, the driver will also stop at Waverley Steps, which is right at Waverley Station.
The train stops at Haymarket Station and then Waverley.

Re: Glasgow to Edinburgh?

by clivedinburgh

I'd advise on taking the train for speed alone as many streets in Edinburgh (notably Shandwick Place) are shut due to tram works which are affecting bus routes/times.

For train get off at Waverley and for times see;

For buses there are two choices;

Travel Tips for Glasgow

Escape the city

by fluffybunny

Glasgow is wonderful but if it's the buzz of a big city that you are after then your better off to head for London. If you like architecture then it;s wonderful to see the work of Greek Thompson and Renee McIntosh. Glasgow is great for art galleries also and mostly they are not charging entry If you go to Glasgow you must leave the hub of the city and ventuire further out to the outskirts. If your coming to Scotland it's better to come to see the beatiful countryside. Loch Ness is the most famous but Nessie has gone into retirement.

"Sorry"

by cadja

To me, the first thing I noticed was how sorry everyone was. If you stand in the store looking at something and someone wants to pass, THAT person says "sorry" for passing and YOU says "sorry" for standing in the way.

Where I come from we may say "sorry" for passing, but in the situation above I think we'd just say "may I pass" with the reply "sure".

This was just an example, people say "sorry" in all situations imaginable. Sounds nice though, I got used to it very quickly.

Although people gives me peculiar looks nowadays when I automatically use the same phrase here in Stockholm...

The glasgow climbing centre

by blos

This is a climbing wall inside of an old converted church. Lots of routes from beginner to advanced. All the necessary equipment including rockshoes, and harnesses can be rented from the centre. There is a climbing gear shop there aswell. You can bring your own gear or rent it.

This is for those sadists out...

by thunderbox

This is for those sadists out there, or is it masochists? I always get them confused. So, for all those evil people who like to be mean.
They have the equivalent of rickshaws in Glasgow. So, to be really cruel, have your driver wander aimlessly up but never down the hills of Glasgow while eating the equivalent of an adult elephant's weight in haggis.

don't head towards

by sammyE about Sauchiehall Street

Sauchiehall street is definately the place tohead if you want to go on a pup crawl - however be ready to play "dodge the drunk" and shudder at the sight of bear legs and sandles during the coldest of January nights. For a calmer, more sophisticated evening head towards the merchant City
