On track for Burns Night with Caledonian Sleeper Published: Tuesday, 17 January 2017 16:10

With Burns Night approaching, overnight rail service Caledonian Sleeper will be marking the life and works of Scotland’s most famous poet with its own on board celebrations.

Held on Wednesday 25th January, guests on the service’s iconic London to Edinburgh route can make an ‘Address to a Haggis’ as they learn about Burns’ life and his Edinburgh connections.

After honouring the ‘bard’ with one of his most well-known poems, guests can sit down to enjoy a plate of the country’s national dish which includes haggis, neeps and tatties served in the warmth of the Caledonian Sleeper Lounge Car.

Meanwhile, in Inverness, travellers waiting to board the departing London bound service in Caledonian Sleeper’s Guest Lounge can also pay tribute to Burns in style. Highland fare and a bagpipe serenade will see them off as they leave their ‘Heart in the Highlands’ and head south.

Ryan Flaherty, Guest Experience Director, Caledonian Sleeper said: “As one of Scotland’s most celebrated poets, it is only right that Caledonian Sleeper marks Robert Burns’ contribution to the country’s culture.

“With festivities in our Guest Lounge in Inverness and on board our service from London to Edinburgh, we hope those travelling with us will enjoy some haggis and a dram and wake up in the morning ready to learn more about Scotland’s love affair with Burns.”

For those travelling to Scotland with Caledonian Sleeper, the country boasts a host of attractions where visitors can learn more.

This includes the Burns Monument just a few minutes’ walk from Edinburgh’s Waverley Station, as well as the Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway. The museum is perfect for those visiting Glasgow who have a day to explore. Alloway is just an hour and a half by train from Glasgow’s Central Station.
