Husband and I have a day and a half to leave Edinburgh and "see" the rest of the country. Land Friday night, have to be in St. Andrews Sunday to register for conference by 5 pm. Thinking of renting a car early Saturday morning and heading out to Falkirk Wheel, Sterling Castle, Glencoe...then stuck. Should we ferry to Skye? then go across the bridge, see Eileen Donan, then head to Fort Augustus (see the tip of Ness), over to Spean Bridge, Dalwhinnie, Pitlochry, back to the airport? It was…
Next week we are lucky to go to Scotland. We have been there before a few times and absolutely love it. We go with a tent and bring along 2 children (10,15) and a grazy labrador.
This is our plan:
From New Castle we go to Kinlochleven ( can't get enough of the Glencoe area) for 7 nights, than we want to go to Fidden farm camping on Mull for 5 nights. This camping looks absolutely stunning , then we go to Glenbrittle campsite on Skye for 4 night , after that we end our holiday in…
I have a week to spend in Scotland (July 19-26), ending with a flight out of Edinburgh. I've been thinking of renting a car and driving out towards Isle of Skye, stopping to see Highland Games at inveraray, and ending with time 3 nights/ 2days in Edinburgh. It's lunacy to try and see Scotland in so few days but I'd love to hear what you LOVED while you visited and what you remember fondly. For example, should I ditch the car and take the Jacobite Steam train for the experience alone? I don't…
I'm flying into Edinburgh on 25 July 2015. I'm staying near ScotlandsPeople in Princes Street from 25th to 29 July. I will then have a hire car until I fly out on August 2015.
29 -30 July Edinburgh to Pitlochry and Inverness - 2 nights Inverness.
I want to go to Inverness to the Highland Archives for at least a day and was planning to drive up via Pitlochry (do a walk, have lunch there and get to my accommodation late afternoon).
31 July - 2 August Inverness to Skye. I had relatives…
A friend and I are taking a whirlwind trip through Scotland and Northern Ireland at the beginning of August. We were hoping to start in Edinburgh, spent a day or so, then drive/bus to the Isle of Skye, then go onto Northern Ireland, see the Giant's Causeway, and end in Dublin. We're looking at
a) Renting a car in Edinburgh, driving up and back to the Isle of Skye, flying to Dublin or Belfast, renting another car and doing NI.
b) Bussing/driving from Edinburgh toward the Isle of Skye…
We need an inexpensive cottage for 7 days on or near Skye in August. We have a dog. Could you please help us? How do B&B and Hotels compare in Price with the Holiday Cottages?
I've never been to Scotland and am planing a ten day hiking trip there in August. Can someone tell me is bivouac is allowed everywhere in the wild? We want to B&B as little as possible. Could someone suggest a good 7 day hike? Thanks,
Hello – I am looking to relocate to the UK from the US with my boyfriend. I am a US citizen living in Philadelphia in the US, while he is a UK citizen, living in Glasgow, Scotland. We met 2 years ago in a bar in Glasgow when I was touring Scotland and Ireland. Since then we make sure to visit each other back and forth between countries every 2 – 3 months, while staying in daily contact via email, messaging & Skype. We plan to live in Glasgow for a year, then move permanently back to the US.
I'm a 38 year old male and I'm going off track on Jura for a few days between 20th and 28th June.
I've not got very big plans apart from taking a hammock and small tent, maybe have a couple of nights in a bothy and try and live off what I find.
Company would be lovely so if anyone feels like a few days wandering along the coast give me a shout and come along.
