The Caledonain sleeper survives to run another day
After several years of walking, we finally arrive in Kirk Yetholm and complete the Pennine Way
There can be only one contender. It's the West Highland Line from Fort William and there's only one way to do it. The Caledonian Sleeper.
As we ambled along, a mighty TOOOT TOOOT! filled the valley.
Earlier in the year I blogged about travelling to Edinburgh by sleeper. But it's not the only Scottish sleeper train there is, for you can also go to the highlands by overnight rail too.
In the UK you can get most places in a reasonable time by train so why fly? The journey from London to Edinburgh is perhaps pushing it slightly, with a journey of four and a half hours. So trying the sleeper train to Edinburgh seemed a good idea.
When it comes to trains, nothing really evokes the romance of the sleeper. Of boarding a train, and of it whisking you through the night to another city, where an attendant gently wakes you crying "Good morning sir" before handing you your breakfast.
