Get set for some fab family days out! Because with a Kids Go Free ticket not only can two kids (aged 5-15) travel free off-peak with each adult all year round, you also get one free child entry to a host of Scotland's best attractions. That's double free! At such amazing value you could be saving as much as £12.60 on a family day out on train tickets alone.

You can use your Kids Go Free tickets to get free child admission to go on some of the most exciting family days out Scotland has to offer. From the Edinburgh Dungeon to Aberdeen’s Satrosphere, Snow Factor at Xscape in Glasgow, the Loch Ness Centre, Dundee’s Science Centre, Deep Sea World in Queensferry and many more, with one child getting free entry there’s a whole host of places to visit and fun things to do at half the price. Check out our full list of participating attractions to plan your next day out.

I was at Edinburgh Zoo and they refused to take my "normal" train ticket, says it has to specifically say "kids go free" on the ticket so make sure you get that.
