If you are travelling between England and Scotland by train, tickets generally go on sale three months prior to the departure date and increase in price closer to the travel date, therefore the cheapest fares can be found about 90 days before. I generally use https://www.thetrainline.com/ price comparison site for booking long distance rail tickets. It can also sometimes be cheaper buying split tickets, for example, buying 1 x single from London Euston to Birmingham New Street, plus 1 x single from Birmingham New Street to Preston, plus 1 x single from Preston to Glasgow Central, can offer be cheaper than buying one ticket from London to Glasgow and you don't necessarily have to leave the train during the journey either. You could try your luck on the http://splitmyfare.co.uk website.
