Train timetables for Scotland are set to change this weekend.

ScotRail's timetable will change on Sunday and customers are being asked to check their journey for any changes.

In the north a later service will operate between Inverness and Elgin on a trial basis.

This will depart Inverness at 22.12.

The 21.34 Inverness to Aberdeen service will continue to operate as at present.

Further changes are to be implemented for the central belt

Additional stops are being added to services between Glasgow Queen Street and Aberdeen, and between Edinburgh Waverley and Aberdeen.

The new timetable is introduced during the train operator’s off-peak all day fares trial which started on October 2 and will run for six months.

Customers can check train times at scotrail.co.uk and on the ScotRail app. Timetables are also available to download from the ScotRail website.

David Simpson, ScotRail service delivery director, said: "Our December timetable change represents another step in our ongoing commitment to deliver the best service we can, and encourage more people to choose rail travel instead of using the car, particularly during our off-peak all day fares trial.

“From the introduction of electric trains to increased frequency on key routes and enhanced service reliability, we are dedicated to making Scotland’s Railway more accessible and efficient.

“There is a lot of ongoing investment in our network with decarbonisation continuing, and improvements across the network. This new timetable is an important part of that.

“We’re asking all of our customers to make sure they check their journeys before they try to travel as train times may have changed.”
