Rail Travel in Scotland - Traveller's Notes

There are many things the English neglect about their neighbours and rail travel in Scotland is the perfect way to discover more. For example, Scotland's most famous resident the Loch Ness monster is not the only water-bound beastie above the border; unidentified creatures are said to inhabit the depths of many of Scotland's lochs including Loch Suainbhal and Loch Duvat.
