Travel summary:

Externally these Turbostar trains can resemble trains used for shorter-distance commuter routes, but internally the seating layout is comparatively generously spaced - though on these trains, First Class is particularly spacious in comparison to standard class.
(Though many of these trains only convey Standard Class seats).

Longer-distance routes:

(1) Edinburgh – Kirkcaldy – Leuchars (for St Andrews) – Dundee – Arbroath – Montrose – Stonehaven – Aberdeen
(2) Edinburgh – Kirkcaldy – Perth – Pitlochry – Aviemore – Inverness
(3) Glasgow Queen St – Stirling – Perth - Dundee – Arbroath – Montrose – Stonehaven – Aberdeen
(4) Glasgow Queen St – Stirling – Perth - Pitlochry – Aviemore – Inverness
(5) Aberdeen – Elgin – Inverness

Though the Inter7City trains now provide most of the services on these routes,

Catering:

A catering trolley with hot/cold drinks, snacks and sandwiches available is taken through the train, so both First and Standard Class travellers will receive an at-seat catering service.

First Class ticket holders will be given a complimentary hot/cold drink and some Scottish shortbread – guaranteed to enhance any journey.

Bicycles:

Spaces must be reserved in advance of boarding on those five long-distance routes.
