Good day all,
I'm flying into Edinburgh late June for a conference. I arrive Friday 5pm, fly out the following Friday 5pm, and I have the conference from Monday-Wednesday (with registration Sunday).
What I'm after are some "starters for 10" for the Sat/Sun and Thursday - maybe even the Friday - bearing in mind it's a 30 hour plane trip from NZ and I may well be shattered on arrival. Sort of a sandwich around the conference.

Should I stick to the basic "tourist run" around central Edinburgh on the…

How much time does one need to explore Jupiter Artland? I will be staying in Glasgow, and am planning a day trip outside of the city for the day. What I want to accomplish is seeing New Lanark and Jupiter Artland in the same day.

Is this possible? I think I can get to New Lanark at opening time (10:00) and leave to make the bus to Jupiter Artland that arrives there at 2:20 (with a connection in Livingston). But Jupiter Artland closes at 5. Is this enough time, or are the grounds too vast?

Hi, all.

I’m going to be in Scotland, walking St. Cuthbert’s Way (which finishes at the eastern end of the borderlands), after which I’ll have a few more days before going home. Trying to decide how to spend those days. Most likely, I’ll improvise, but would welcome your input.

I think quiet and not overly busy, maybe a coastal town or village would be best. Some places which seem appealing are Kirkcudbright, Crail, Pittenweem, and maybe Crovie or Pennan (I know the latter two are a good…

Hi, I am going to Edinburgh for 7 days at the end of May ( long weekend ). This is the first time I am going to travel entirely by myself. I am nervous but excited at the same time.

Flying from OZ thru Heathrow to Edinburgh, travel agent says luggage will be transferred from Royal Brunei flight to internal BA flight so all I have to do is change terminals. Another "expert" says I must retrieve luggage at Heathrow, go thru customs and transfer it to the onward flight to Edinburgh myself. Can anyone tell me which is correct as am elderly and not up to charging about Heathrow with luggage. Thanks!

Hey :)

My girlfriend and I will be spending 2 weeks in Scotland at the end of August/Beginning of September. We both do not feel very confident about driving on the left side on the street, and hiring a car is more expensive for us because we're apparently "too young" (23) to get a normal price (is this the case with every company?) Therefore we want to get around by public transport, maybe with one of these "X out of Y days unlimited travel with bus/train/ferry" offers.. I already searched the…

Hello,

I am planning my trip this summer to Scotland, and I am hitting a little travel snafu.

I will be taking the evening ferry from Tarbert to Uig on the Isle of Skye on Saturday evening 8/13. My plan was to sleep in Uig and then take the 57C bus around the Trotternish Peninsula to Portree where I would then hire a car.

I just looked at the Scottish Citylink website, and if I am reading it correctly, there is no Sunday bus service. This is the site I looked up: http://www.travelinescotla

Hello,

My biggest concern is my trip home... I'm using award miles on United for my tickets and already have my inbound ticket (Houston to London, then splurging on sleeper train to Inverness) but trying to figure out how to get home... Most any train/bus/flight from Inverness to…
