Caledonian Sleeper is inspiring busy Londoners to escape the hustle and bustle of their daily lives with an awakening escape to Scotland.

The overnight rail service has launched a new campaign which showcases the country’s outdoor experiences.

Cycling through the glens of Inverness, kayaking across Loch Lomond, exploring the Cairngorms’ wild landscapes and hiking over mighty mountains are top of the company's list of Scottish escapes, all of which can be reached via the overnight journey.

The service has also partnered with golf holiday package company DP&L Golf to offer guests a golf experience to some of Scotland’s most iconic courses. The company provides set itineraries including travel, accommodation, transfers, meals and golf experiences in St Andrews, Inverness and Carnoustie.

Avoiding the hassle of airport queues, London guests can board Caledonian Sleeper at Euston Station before stepping off the train the next morning in Scotland.

Ryan Flaherty, Serco’s guest experience director at Caledonian Sleeper, said: “The spring and summer months are one of the best times of year to visit Scotland. The country’s dramatic scenery and world-renowned outdoor activities provide the perfect escape from busy London, offering a time for adventure and to get away from it all.

“With a direct service to stations across Scotland, guests can travel stress-free with their outdoor equipment or golf clubs and maximise their time in the wilderness of The Highlands, the mountains of the Cairngorms or on St Andrew’s famous golf courses.”
