Dream destinations on the Caledonian Sleeper

When it is launched next year, the new Caledonian Sleeper will continue to serve some of the UK’s most popular destinations.

Six nights a week, trains will depart in the small hours with the Highland route running between London Euston and Fort William, Inverness and Aberdeen, and the Lowland route running between London Euston and Edinburgh Waverley or Glasgow Central.

 

Highland route

The Aberdeen train takes in a number of major stops, including Dundee and two popular golfing destinations in Carnoustie and St Andrews (via Leuchars station). The Inverness service visits stations including Aviemore, Perth, Gleneagles and Stirling. The Fort William service passes through picturesque Tulloch, Corrour, Crianlarich and Helensburgh Upper.

On the London to Scotland leg, the Caledonian Sleeper splits into three at Edinburgh Waverley, with the three sections arriving later in the morning in Aberdeen, Inverness and Fort William.

 

Lowland route

Travelling southbound, the Caledonian Sleeper departs from both Edinburgh Waverley and Glasgow Central. The Glasgow Central train stops at Motherwell before linking up with the Edinburgh train. It then crosses the border, stopping at Carlisle and then at Watford Junction before arriving at London Euston.

Travelling northbound the Caledonian Sleeper Lowland route sets off as one train, eventually splitting to allow guests to arrive in either Glasgow or Edinburgh.
