Borders Railway – your gateway to Easter Days Out

A new travel pass offering unlimited two-day rail travel for Edinburgh families is being launched just in time for Easter.
The Edinburgh Days Out travel pass, introduced by ScotRail, will let families discover top tourist attractions across Midlothian and the Scottish Borders and save money while doing so.

The travel passes offer unlimited, off-peak travel rail travel to all stations on the Borders Railway from Edinburgh Waverley.

Perfect for weekend breaks or family adventures, the 2-day passes are available for £18 per adult, or a family pass (2 adults & 2 children) is available for just £34, with the offer continuing beyond the Easter holidays.

Popular attractions and events along the line include the stunning Abbotsford House, the historic Melrose Abbey, and Midlothian’s five star visitor attraction, the National Mining Museum Scotland. The world-famous Melrose Sevens competition will also return to the Scottish Borders on 8 April.

In addition to the new travel pass, the Border Weaver bus service will also re-launch in time for the Easter break, helping travelling couples and families explore all that the Scottish Borders has to offer.

Running regularly throughout the day from both Tweedbank Station and the Galashiels Transport Interchange, the bus service provides direct access to attractions across the area.

Lindley Kirkpatrick Borders Railway Programme Executive from ScotRail said: “The launch of our new travel pass couldn’t come at a better time. With thousands of families looking for fun activities to do during time off from work and school, our flexible, money saving travel pass allows visitors from Edinburgh to discover hidden gems in Midlothian and Scottish Borders dotted right along the Borders Railway line.”

Jemma Reid Project Manager from Midlothian and Borders Tourism Action Group said: “Midlothian and the Scottish Borders are brimming with high quality tourist attractions, and some of Scotland’s finest artisanal food and drink. Coupled with the impressive vistas and rolling hills on offer from the comfort of the Borders Railway, now is the perfect time to explore the region.”

  1. for the love of god, read the restrictions about off peak travel. If you get caught out it’s your own fault
