    Might be worth putting date you are travelling, you never know, someone might be coming up the line with an empty car.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing. But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    If your over 50 or 55 you can go anywhere in Scotland for 15 quid!! I go Wick to Glasgow on the train quite often and if I book it 2 weeks before it costs about 45 return.

    Default bus fares!

    I got a bus from Thurso to Inverness for 6.05 I think it was had to be booked online and was non tranferable or refundable but what a bargain. these tickets are available they are Apex tickets you can download and print your own ticket and then turn up at said time! You just try all the various times the buses go on the day you want to travel and find a cheeky fare...have done this lots and always gotten a cracking deal!

    Default Dates

    For a specific price for what you want you would have to indicate what is your available window of travel.

    There are flights from Gatwick to Inverness on the 22 and the 24 of Feb for under 40 all in.

    You can get a sleeper train 19 inclusive each london to Inverness, flights are cheap to inverness, and if you are over 55 you could get from Berwick to Wick for 15 each RETURN.on the train.

    Angry bus thurso

    I booked bus tickets on the Scrabster- Inverness run- 70 for four thinking it would be convenient directly from the ferry. Not only that- the website assured me that cancellation was possible up to 24 hours before travel. Almost immediately I discovered that the rail could be purchased for 42 - a considerable saving. Returning to the bus site I found no means to cancel & upon emailing was informed that the cost to cancel was minimum 50% & in this case 10 per ticket. So a warning to other travellers- especially those of us booking from overseas- don't purchase your bus ticket until you have researched ALL means of travel first!
