ScotRail adds extra seats for Sunday’s biggest ever Kiltwalk

Listen to this article

ScotRail is adding more seats to services between Motherwell and Balloch this Sunday as thousands of people are expected to take part in Glasgow’s biggest ever charity Kiltwalk.

A record 14,000 walkers will get their tartan on and take part in three different routes across Glasgow, Clydebank, and Loch Lomond, all in aid of raising thousands of pounds for good causes.

The 23-mile ‘Mighty Stride’ will start from Glasgow Green and finish in Balloch country park, with the 14-mile ‘Big Stroll’ starting from Clydebank, and the three-mile ‘Wee Wander’ taking place around the south shores of Loch Lomond.

To help customers to and from the event, ScotRail has announced extra seats will be added to services between Motherwell and Balloch, which also call at stations around Glasgow city centre and Clydebank.
With ScotRail services expected to be even more popular on Sunday, customers are encouraged to buy return tickets in advance via the mTicket system on the ScotRail app. Buying through the app means mTickets can be purchased before arriving at the station, and will instantly become available on a mobile device.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Customer Operations Director, said: “It’s fantastic to see so many people take part in this year’s Kiltwalk in Glasgow, and we’re looking forward to helping customers get to and from their chosen routes.

“ScotRail will be adding more seats on our direct services between Motherwell and Balloch, calling at stations around Glasgow city centre and Clydebank.

“We’re encouraging customers to plan ahead and allow extra time for travel, as services may be busier than usual.”
