Local transportation in Scotland

Planes, trains and automobiles…what’s the best way to get around?

Scotland has so much to see and experience, so naturally there is an abundance of public transport and travel options. 

Pick-pockets: While traveling in Scotland is a breeze, it is always important to be aware of your surroundings. Pick-pocketing is a major occurrence, especially in larger cities. Make sure that your bag is zipped up and carried in front of you and that your wallet is tucked away safely. It is also a good idea to keep copies of your passport and essential documents in your dorm or hotel room, just in case. Keep an eye out for yourself and your friends on crowded metro trains and don’t be afraid to make a lot of noise if you see something out of place. Pick-pockets scare easily!
