The Kids Go Free ticket allows two children aged five to 15 to travel off-peak, any day of the week, anywhere in Scotland for free, with each adult. The Kids Go Free ticket also entitles one child free entry at a number of attractions. In the north, those include Aberdeen’s Satrosphere science centre, where families can get interactive, and Dundee’s iconic Discovery ship, where you can become a buccaneer for the day.

Over in the west, discover an amazing underwater world at Loch Lomond Sea Life Aquarium or test out your skills on the Snow Factor slopes at Soar at Intu Braehead.

Other attractions involved include Abbotsford House, home of Sir Walter Scott in the Borders and The Highland Wildlife Park in the Cairngorms National Park where you can meet Walker the Polar Bear.

The Kids Go Free ticket is a return and is available all year round. Tickets can be purchased online, from ticket vending machines or any station.

Scotrail’s Cathy Craig says, “Our Kids Go Free ticket provides families with an affordable fun day out.

“Not only do kids aged 5-15 travel free, 24 top attractions offer discounted entry as part of the package.

“The Easter holidays are the perfect time to enjoy a Scottish staycation and experience some of the great things to do around the country.”
