I must be jet-lagged, missed all the stuff about the sleeper.

It's still the best way to do a day trip to Scotland from London though

If going to Edinburgh and back and not doing the restrictive online route where you can nab really cheap tickets like TimS says and want flexilibity then consider the BritRail pass - not only for UK travel but also this pass would qualify you for a passholder fare on Eurostar to Paris - as low at $77 one way - but again must reserve far in advance to get this fare and the fare is tiered and can cost much more.

A 4-day Brit Flexipass could also be used for Windsor and from either airport - not huge fares but if you are not using the other 4 days a factor - good on all trains in UK, including pricey Heathrow Express and Gatwick Express.

But pass makes sense probably only if you can't get the sometimes elusive online dirt-cheap special fares and can cope with the non-changeability, non-refundability of such fares.

I'd take the Kings X to Edinburgh 4.5 hour trip one way in the daytime because it's so scenic - well the part from York to Edinburgh is as it often hugs a gorgeous coast.
