Upcoming Six Nations matches at Murrayfield


If you’re travelling to Scotland’s upcoming RBS Six Nations games at Murrayfield, we’ll be putting measures in place to make sure your journey goes as smoothly as possible.

The games:

  • Saturday 21 March: Scotland v Ireland. Kick off at 2.30pm

The newly refurbished Haymarket station has a different layout and a new special events queuing system in place. A full map is available here.


What we’ll be doing to make things go smoothly:

  • Operating 'special' football trains between Dundee and Glasgow
  • Adding carriages to trains between Glasgow and Mount Florida - but fans should still be prepared for a busy journey
  • Putting queuing systems in place at Dundee and Glasgow Central stations on the outbound journey, and at Mount Florida and Glasgow Queen Street stations on the return
  • Enforcing alcohol bans to help make sure everyone can safely enjoy the day
  • Issuing messages through the media, our website, stations, and via partner organisations to keep everyone informed
  • Working with partners including British Transport Police and football clubs

After the match:

  • British Transport Police officers and dozens of extra ScotRail staff will be on the ground to assist you after the final whistle.
  • If you’re travelling north, south, and to Glasgow Central or Airdrie/Bathgate, you should access the station via the main entrance to join queues inside.
  • For those travelling west to Glasgow Queen Street via Falkirk High, or to Stirling and Dunblane, you should join the queue situated beside the front entrance of Rosebery House on Haymarket Terrace.
  • Remember, there are three routes between Glasgow and Edinburgh – one each from Queen Street High and Low Levels, and another from Glasgow Central via Shotts.

What you can do:

  • Be aware of the new layout at Haymarket station, and how the new queuing system will work
  • Buy tickets in advance either on our website, at staffed stations, or via telesales on 0330 303 0111
  • Allow extra time for travel as services will be very busy
  • Follow any advice from British Transport Police or ScotRail staff
  • Avoid drinking or visibly carrying alcohol as a ban will be in place on all rugby trains
  • Get live train running info via our app, our website, and the ScotRail twitter feed

We've put together some tips for fans travelling from Dundee to Glasgow for the Dundee Utd v Celtic League Cup final on Sunday 15 March. On this day, in addition to scheduled services, dedicated 'special' trains will operate between Dundee and Glasgow Queen Street to transport fans to and from the game.

  • Operating 'special' football trains between Dundee and Glasgow
  • Adding carriages to trains between Glasgow and Mount Florida - but fans should still be prepared for a busy journey

  • Allow extra time for travel as services will be very busy
  • Consider travelling earlier in the day as you may not be able to board the first train you aim for
