The 10 best Munro hiking routes by train

Scotland's mountains can be easily explored by using public transport to reach starting points. Here's our pick of the 10 best Munro routes accessed by train, with more outlined at the bottom of the page.

Munros by train

The default way for most people to reach their destination to head out hill-walking and hiking in Scotland is to travel by car. But it doesn't have to be like this ! There are reckoned to be more than 200 Munros accessible by public transport, with many of these near a train station. So, if you're in Scotland for some Munro-bagging and don't want to take the car, what's the best Munro days to be had starting from a train station ? We've racked our brains and come up with the following list.

There are two main railway lines to the Highlands from the Central Belt. From Glasgow one line heads north by Loch Lomond and splits at Tyndrum, where the Lower line continues onto Oban and the Upper line travels on to Fort William. The other line heads from Perth to Inverness then Dingwall, where it splits with one line running south-west to Kyle of Lochalsh and another line heading further north to Wick and Thurso

Train timetables and station information can be found at National Rail Enquiries.
