Hogmanay Tickets - street party or concert in the gardens?

Looking for some advice from people who have been to Edinburgh for New Years before!

Me and a friend have booked hotel and flights to Edinburgh for a few days over New Year and now need to book tickets for New Year's Eve but are unsure whether to get street party or concert in the gardens tickets... which is better?

And any other must see/dos in Edinburgh over the few days we're there?

Thanks!

Scotland - visiting the homeland

Hi

Despite my deep Scottish heritage (I am a Douglas and a Crawford) I have never visited Caledonia - but we aim to correct this early next year (April-May is being considered). We are very flexible on tour length, budget, and (at this stage) dates, at least until we settle some airfares, a cruise on the Med, and other trivia.

Now - as a 50,000+ poster (primarily on the Australian and North American branches), I am certainly not asking for an ideal itinerary out of the blue, however I do have…

Looking for an island in Scotland to spend a month

I'm planning a trip to Scotland for next summer. I'm a teacher and get almost two months off during July and August. My plan is to leave July 9 and head back August 20 (give or take). I'd like to spend the first week in and around Edinburgh, as well as the last week or two (when my husband will be flying out to join me).

But in between those times, I'll have about 3-4 weeks to spend elsewhere. I'm looking to go somewhere with a hostel/guest house/B&B that isn't "party" oriented (I'm in my…

4 week car trip

My husband and I are in the beginning stages of planning a four-week adventure to Scotland in September and possibly the beginning of October2015.

Edinburgh Fringe accommodation -- how far in advance to book?

Hi, all. I'm planning a trip to Edinburgh next August. A couple friends are interested in travelling too but haven't booked flights yet. I'm wondering how far in advance we should plan to book accommodation in order to have a decent selection at a reasonable (for festival time) price. We're probably looking for a self-catering apartment with at least 2 bedrooms and 3 beds.

Should we be trying to make a reservation now? Is waiting until 6 months out likely to be too late? I see lots of options…

Camper recommendation

Hi Scotland experts,
we want to travel through Scotland in June 2015 and think about a camper so we can stop when and where we want. Can you please let me know your experience, what type of camper will be good - and of course which companies are the favourite one. Good Price and good car.
Thankx for your Feedback. Best regards
