I am planning to travel to Scottland with my two boys. We will take the train to Paris and continue with the Eurostar to London. Are you having experiences with a night train up to Edinburgh or Iverness?

Or a recommendation for a solid B&B or hotel in London near the station?

In  addition I also have difficulties to do reservations on the Eurostar? Any advice?

Thank you and kind regards,

I´ve used back in 2019 the Caledonian Sleeper from London to Inverness and then from Aberdeen to London :)  it was a nice comfortable journey :) Note that last year Caledonian Sleeper changed the Rolling  stock and now use new Coaches :) and that due Covid and the restrictions the Nighttrains is more often canceled or delayed than usual :/

With a Railpass like Interrail you just need a berth supplement depending on the comfort you wanna have it can be quite expensive :) and worths a look for special family offers :) or as you said to break the journey in London and catch a train the next day :)
