Thank you for your question.<br><br>The shortest connection all the way from <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/lisbon/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/lisbon/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Lisbon</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/scotland/index.html">Scotland</a> would involve at least 3 train changes en route; once in Hendaye, once in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/paris/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paris</a>, and then once in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/england/london/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">London</a>.

    Changed description to Dear Sirs, Travelling through Europe, from Lisbon is very difficult, as we take many hours to get to the centre of Europe. We have to cross mosto of Portugal and then much of Spain and half of France just to get to Paris. So, if we want to travel by motorbike we need many days just to get somewhere and then the days we need to go and explore that somewhere. In this case, we would like to go to Scotland. I would like to know if you can tell me if that is possible (including the transportation of the motorbike), by train. We would like to get from Bilbau or somewhere nearby, as soon as possible, to somewhere near Scotland, to then start our motorbike trip through Scotland. Can you help us, please. Thank-you for you time. Yours Sincerely, Maria Moreira.
