I was recommended the Ben Nevis Inn and Bunkhouse which is right underneath the base of the the Ben Nevis and apparently in a beautiful mountain location. The "problem" is that it is a 45-min walk from Fort Williams or 6 pounds for a taxi..I was told staying in Fort Williams centre is not very nice...is that true? i did find a few hostels in fort willliams with a similar price....just don´t know if it is really worthwhile paying another 12 pounds for a place which could be equially beautiful…
Hi, I´m planning to travel to the isle of Skye for a day or two from fort Williams, as I haven´t got that many days.What would the highlights be for a day? where would the best place to stay be, in terms of accommodation? Thanks!
We have booked a few days in Glasgow in mid-August and have a week to travel in Scotland but we don't drive.
We're seeking two destinations for three days each, where we might plant ourselves, and take day walks or sightseeing by buses.
I've tried booking on Skye, in Portree, but everything is booked.
Where would you suggest during this busy time? After being in cities -- beauty, remoteness, landscape, castles, all the things that visitors seek in Scotland, of course! We'd even hire a…
hey, I'm doing a solo to Highlands for hiking & camping next week. Starting in Glasgow and taking road trip for 3/4 days. Places include Glencoe (Nam Bian/Ben Nevis), Mallaig (Morar), Sligachan (Cullen), Strathcarron and Torridon. Flexible with places and actitivies; got to head back 21st. Mostly hostelling (or Camping). Have a car for trip.
Luv to have a like-minded person as travel buddy; also can meet for drinks. M39 here if you care.
Suggestions to trip are most welcome :)
My wife and I are flying into Edinburgh mid September to celebrate my 40th birthday. Instead of trying to rush around over seven days we're looking to spend time in two locations - Edinburgh (2-3 days) and somewhere in the Highlands (3-4 days). We have the former figured out, would appreciate some guidance on the latter.
Looking to stay in once place in the Highlands. We will likely rent a car to drive out there and use the car to get to hikes in the area. Budget seems open as my wife…
I would like to apologise to the various previous thread creators who wanted information about temperatures in Scotland in May. In my responses I excluded the possibility of temperatures reaching 29C.
So lads... what would you recommend?
Flying in to Edinburgh on a Friday Morning and I will leave the following Monday. My friend and I will have access to a car so you can go a bit wild in yer suggestions but keep it realistic :).
I will say that we have no interest in the castles and churches and museums (unless it is an unreal science one). Please recommend anything alcohol related and any outdoor activities like rafting, climbing and so on.
Is Glasgow worth a visit?
So for every good…
My friend and I are going to be in Scotland for the last week of July/first week of August, 7 days, and are having some trouble nailing down our itinerary. Neither of us has ever been. Our main goals are to take hikes/walks (we are both in good shape and probably hike faster than average, like long hikes, though not required), seeing old castles and historic sites, visiting highlands, etc. Here is where we are at this point:
Arriving Saturday evening in Edinburgh, staying until Monday…
