Rail passengers travelling from the Highlands to the central belt are being warned to expect several days of disruption in the coming weeks.
Engineering works on the line between Edinburgh and Perth via Stirling mean that there will be a mixture of diverted journeys and partial bus replacement services this Saturday and Sunday.
ScotRail trains from Glasgow to Perth will all be cancelled and replaced by buses, while some trains from Edinburgh will be diverted through Fife with revised times, while others will operate between Perth and Inverness only with connecting buses into the capital.

And a third round of engineering from Sunday to Tuesday, February 25 to 27 will also lead to bus replacements for Inverness-Glasgow trains running between Glasgow and Perth.
