Travel from London to Scotland while you sleep—but try not to miss the gorgeous views!

Dubbed ‘hotels on wheels’, these Caledonian Sleeper trains are the first to ever offer ensuite double rooms.

The trains take you from London Euston to Scotland, with stops at number of beautiful locations in both the lowlands and the highlands—including Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Fort William and Inverness.

The new Caledonian Sleeper fleet hit the tracks back in June 2019, with 75 new carriages offering ‘the hotel experience.’

Caledonian Sleepers have been running since 1873, but this is a significant transformation to the service. Not only do they have fancy new double rooms, but they’ve also introduced reclining seats, a hotel-style keycard system and an increased number of accessible rooms for passengers with reduced mobility.

Prices start at £45 for seats and reach over £300 for superior double rooms. Check out their website for more info

If you’re looking for a faster, cheaper, though nowhere near as exciting journey to Scotland; hop on the swish new train service that will take you from London to Edinburgh for just £25
