From December 2008
There is generally an hourly service throughout the day between Glasgow and Aberdeen. In the current (May 2016) timetable, there are also a few additional services between Glasgow & Dundee which offer connections at the latter for stations further north.
ScotRail has mentioned plans for an additional hourly service from Glasgow to Arbroath. This would improve service frequencies for smaller stations on the line, such as Gleneagles.
