New Scottish air routes to London and Dublin should help researchers

For those of us based in Scotland, Ryanair ( is planning to move some of its services to Glasgow International Airport from October 26th. There will be a new three times a day service from Glasgow to London, and also a three times a day service from Edinburgh to London. From Glasgow there will also be an improved Dublin service, moving from one flight a day to three. Fairs are said to be starting from £19.99 each way.

This should make it easier to get to London and Dublin based repositories from Scotland for research work - though Stansted to Kew is still a bit of a hike! If planning to go to Kew, a map of accommodation nearby is available at, should it be easier to plan a 2 day research trip with an overnight at Kew.

More details on the forthcoming flights is available at


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And FindmyPast - please reinstate the original Scottish census citations on your new site.
