If you are arriving by train at Glasgow Central station you can change there to the very frequent trains to Paisley Gilmour St station.

Then take a 66 or 757 bus for the 1 mile journey to the airport.

If you arrive later in the evening get a taxi.

There are no trains to Glasgow Airport, the nearest station is Paisley Gilmour Street which is about a mile away from the Terminal by bus or taxi. As you are going to an Airport hotel a taxi from there is probably your best bet.

There are up to eight trains an hour between Glasgow Central and Paisley Gilmour Street.

Another alternative is the 500 bus from Glasgow Central direct to the Airport Terminal.

Glasgow Airport's website has all the information:

This route is one of the oddities of the rail ticket system. You can buy a through ticket from Carlisle to Glasgow airport - this covers the train to central, the train to Paisley and the bus to the airport from

Paisley. It is spectacularly bad value at over £40. Buy a ticket to Glasgow central (£23 or so) then a separate one to the airport, for only a few pounds more.

Approx £22

Train to Paisley is around £3:80

Airport Express Bus No. 500 is £6, but it only stops at the Terminal, the hotel is a 5-7 minute walk away.

Since there are at least 2 of you the airport bus or getting a train to Paisley and then bus or taxi won't save you much more than a tenner. For me, especially with luggage in tow, I would just take the easy option and take a cab from Glasgow Central direct to the PI.
