Unlimited travel across the Scottish Highlands via Scotrail for four days in eight including ferries to Isle of Skye & Mull £81.50

Thought this was a bit of a bargain when it's broken down.

For £81.50 you get unlimited travel throughout Scotland by rail over eight consecutive days, You can only travel on four of them though - so basically a day in each place and you can get a ferry to Isle of Skye too. With the ticket you can also get 20% off Northlink ferry services to Orkney and Shetland.

So around £20 each for each day travel. If you are doing long distances over a week and don't want the hassle of driving then this is tempting. There are restrictions on peak times obvs. Also worth noting I've always had very good experience taking my bike on and off Scotrail trains too i.e. they are accommodating.

Good find.
Half a day would be enough
Yes its a shame the days are consecutive or I would purchase this deal. I dinnae like ta be rushed.
The title is misleading. It's four days travel.

This is not a new ticket, I first used one of these around 15 years ago.

There are a lot of similar tickets covering other areas of the country. I've just finished using a 4 days in 8 north west rover, which for £74 gives unlimited off peak train travel for a large area of north west England and southern Scotland.

Sorry. I tried to add over four days but it sounded even more confusing so tried to put it in the body of the text. Sorry. I'll try to edit
You may get to meet Geoff & Vicki, currently visiting every Railway station in Great Britain. In Scotland now. All the Stations
Thanks geeadamg, I may well use that.
Train to Mallaig is awesome for scenery lovers - you won't want it to end.
too many midges or whatever they are called, joking aside this sounds lovely but the weather would need to be hot for me to go back to Scotland, i am always freezing cold when I go there so not sure of the best time to visit!

It doesn't have to be consecutive. it can be any four days out of eight. So, for example, you could book one to start on a Saturday and have days out on the Saturday, Monday, Thursday and following Saturday.

I do agree that it's kinda confusing. I had to read the deal a few times before I posted it to understand but I'm not sure how they could have worded it better.

Also, surprised this got to 300+ degrees. In the days of cheap ryanair to hot countries I didn't think it would suit too many. But it's good to see that people recognise Scotland as the second best* place in the world. Thanks for voting guys.

*1st is obviously Yorkshire.
