In case you missed National Tartan Day, which was April 6, and Scotland Week, which runs through April 14, you can save some coin on traveling by rail through Scotland, with a deal, Freedom Scotland Travelpass. You can save 20 percent with an extra free travel day for those buying a pass through May 10. The extra-day promotion extends passes by an additional day of rail travel valid in standard class for either four days (within eight days) or eight days (within 15 days). With the offer, guests can get creative with their destination stops while en route to popular spots like Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Stirling. To book, call 866-938-7245 or visit www.britrail.com/passes/britrail-freedom-of-scotland

National Tartan Day was created by Congress in 2005 to honor the contributions of Americas of Scottish descent who played a key role in the development of the United States, which includes Patrick Henry of “Give me liberty or give me death” fame; Andrew Carnegie, steel magnate; Thomas Alva Edison, inventor; and a variety of U.S. presidents, including Ulysses S. Grant, Lyndon Baines Johnson and Woodrow Wilson.
