Quite easy this one. There are regular trains from either Queen St. or Glasgow Central to Livingston. So you need to take the 500 bus from the airport which services both these stations.

You can get timetables for trains at www.nationalrail.co.uk to see which train would suit you.

Where exactly in Livingston?

You need to take the airport bus from Glasgow airport into Glasgow but then you have 3 choices.

There are 2 train stations and a bus service to Livingston so the best option depends where you want to end up

Ah yeah good point Goodwitch. Trains from Glasgow Central go through Livingston South and from Queen Street through Livingston North.

To be honest neither are that central. Livingston is a new town (strange to still be saying that after about 50 years) and is very spread out. Probably you will need to take a cab or a long bus journey to your destination.

Just a thought, but if you have the opportunity to change arrival airports, Edinburgh is nearer.

The trains from Queen Street low level to Livingston run every 15mins during the day. You can also pick up this train from Partick station so you could get the 747 bus to this interchange station from the airport.

Actualy a very good call to arrive at Edinburgh. You could probably just take a cab direct from the airport for not much more than the cost of getting from Glasgow and back.

Ok. Queen Street railway station in Glasgow to Livingston North railway station, then a 10 minute walk if you can manage or a few minutes in a taxi if you have a lot of luggage
