I am planning to hike only 2-3 days of the West Highland Way at the end of September. I'm meeting some family members which are doing the entire thing, however due to work constraints, I have to leave early and only hike "the boring bits". I believe I will only be hiking to Cashel/Balmaha or Rowardennan. Very slight chance I could make it to Inversnaid, but not betting on it. Is there available public transport to either Fort William (ideally) or Glasgow from these locations? Where…
I Like traveling to Scotland all my life and am not sure how to go about it , and decided on a quick (I know, very sad) One-Month trip to Scotland. I will either be flying into Glasgow and flying out of Edinburgh or vice versa (I welcome any suggestions and help on the better route). I need somebody who can help tell me how to get an invitation letter and the posssible chances getting a visa with a Cameroonian Passport . (How long it will take me to go through with grabbing a visa ) sombody…
We will be travelng to Scotland in Mid-October. Spending 2 days in Edinburgh and now are considering our options for the rest of the trip: we are interested in seeing the Western Highlands before flying out of Glasglow on Saturday, October 17. What would be the best use of our time, including mode of travel, booking a tour or doing it on our own via train, etc for Tuesday through Friday? The Jacobite Ft William to Mallaig trip looks intriguing....has anyone found it a must do? We were…
I am doing the West Highland Way in a few days (Aug 22 - 29). Is the walk well marked? I won't be traveling with a GPS. Trying to study the itinerary from Google Earth but some parts seem to be unmarked, is there a map specifically dedicated to this walk that I should buy in Milngavie? Thanks for the input.
My husband and I are planning to go to Assynt during the last week of september. We are mainly interested in walking. I read that deer hunting is very popular at this time of the year. I was wondering about the experiences of others .......did you have any problems with walking because of the hunting in progress or even stags attacking as this is the time they form their territories. I would really appreciate your comments/thoughts on this.
I am traveling to Ireland and decided on a quick (I know, very sad) 3-day trip to Scotland. I will either be flying into Glasgow and flying out of Edinburgh or vice versa (I welcome any suggestions on the better route). I am just not sure what I have time for in between. I like to take in city and landscape sights. Is a trip to the Highlands in between cities recommended? Ideally, I would like to travel by train or bus only. Is this possible?
I'm headed to Scotland for 10 days. Looking to spend a day or two in Glasgow and Edinburgh, and then head out of the cities (perhaps in the middle of trip) and hike and kayak. Is there one town you'd recommend that is easily reachable by train, from which I can access one of the parks/trails, and also head out on kayaking excursions - and is also good for a home base for a few days (nothing fancy, but pubs, shops, bit of atmosphere)? I've been researching, but recommendations are always…
Found Wilderness Scotland earlier and was wondering if any one had any experience using them?
Thinking about booking a holiday soon for the first time there - sometime in September/October, if any one can recommend any good places to see/walks to do.
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…
