Public transport is generally good and efficient. With a combination of buses, trains, ferries, walking, hiring a bike, plenty of time and careful planning, you can get almost anywhere. Most places in the Central Lowlands, between Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee, are easily reached by bus and train. Services in the north and south of Scotland are less efficient and it can be a slow and difficult process getting to more remote parts of the Highlands and Islands and Argyll. Public transport can also be expensive, but there's a whole raft of discount passes and tickets which can save you a lot of money. Hiring a car can work out as a more economical, and certainly more flexible, option, especially for more than two people travelling together. It will also enable you to get off the beaten track and see more of the country.
