    my suggestion would be the train, unless youve got a 4X4
  • Thanks for replying - was just wondering if train might get stuck also - dont know how often trains get stuck due to snow

    Some info here on BBC travel with more info on the roads, can easily move to different regions & here's the Scotrail website
    Booo!!!

    The roads through Dundee are passable if you make it this far... but tbh I'd be taking the train and a credit card, the train because it's less likely to get stuck ( or be crashed into by another car) and the credit card in case it does go horribly wrong and you need to stay over night.

    I would say the train would be your best bet, mind you my daughter was trying to get from Edinburgh to Perth by bus but it was cancelled, so got the train, and has been stuck in Stirling for an hour. Hopefully they will get moving soon.

  • I think the train would be your best bet. The Stonehaven area right up to Aberdeen is not great and even in Aberdeen the main trunk road (Anderson Drive) is not good and lorries always stick there! To top it all off, the snow is still dingin' down up here!!

    is a link to local road closures, can move the map around your route if you decide to drive ( though tbh I'd not risk it)

    just heard on Radio Tay that the A90 has just closed due to a jackknifed lorry ( that's the Dundee to Aberdeen road;) closed at the Tealing junction area)

    also Friarton bridge is closed - that's the big bridge that passes over Perth.

    Book your ticket now before everyone else realises they're taking the trian too.
