Inverness to Newcastle

From £103.50

Inverness is Virgin Trains East Coast’s northernmost destination and our gateway to the Scottish Highlands. Our key route to and from Inverness is the daily service to Edinburgh and then onwards to London along the scenic East Coast mainline. Virgin Trains East Coast operate the Highland Chieftain, a daily train service to London King's Cross via Stirling, Edinburgh, Newcastle and York. From there, we offer regular connections to other destinations across Scotland and England, including Glasgow, Aberdeen, Leeds and Hull. 

You could take the low road and use our journey planner to find a cheap train ticket. Or for a little more, take the high road and arrive in Inverness in First Class comfort. Either way, the price you see is the price you pay. No hidden fees – that’s our Price Promise.

Inverness will make your heart leap like a salmon

There are plenty of reasons to visit the northernmost point of the East Coast mainline. Spectacular highland scenery, famous salmon fishing – maybe even an opportunity to hunt for the elusive monster at nearby Loch Ness – it’s all here. And you don’t have to fling much money at a cheap train ticket either.
