Let me start again:
Can anyone recommend a dentist in DUBLIN. (apologies all around, but the original may have been screwed up by my self-correcting nexus pad. and I screwed up by typing London.)
we (2 male, 30/40yrs) will travel to Scotland mid-September. We are looking for an authentic pub outside Edinburgh to stay one night after visiting Edinburgh while being en route to the Central Highlands (Inverness). We will be traveling by own offroad vehicle.
Maybe something where locals hang out with decent food and reasonable rooms to sleep one night.
Any recommendation is highly appreciated.
And we are both hunters, so something in this spirit would be extra nice.
Couldn't find anything matching with search function.
I am currently in the UK on a UK tourist visa. I am from New Zealand and I have the following questions
1. How long can I stay in the country? I know it sounds silly but I cannot see the stamp in book, I searched online that its up to 6 months but I need to confirm that
2. I wish to get a tier 5 youth working Visa. Are there any restrictions on how long I need to be out of the UK before I can come back in. I am aware that I do have to go home to get my Visa, which is a pain but I don't want to go home and not be allowed back in. Also are there other ways to do this, like going to Ireland?
Thanks guy's I have tried to research but am struggling to find the answers I need
I am planning a trip last minute for myself and family to the Highlands and we are trying to choose where we will go. We are really excited about the highlands- especially the scenery, amazing hikes and maybe seeing some wildlife.
We arrive to Inverness and have 5 days/5 nights to play with before we have to drive down to Edinburgh.(Our flight leaves from there.)
The following places all sound really cool, but we think we need to narrow down our choices to 2 or 3 places to stay..we don't want to be driving all the time or moving each night.
Which of these would you rank as top 2 priority spots?
Isle of Skye
Have read quite a few negative comments recently about Torquay area, and am wondering if Exeter may be more suitable for a day and an overnight stay. Whichever area we don't stay in, can still be "visited" as we will have a car.
We are two 40-something women who have an accommodation budget of 80-120 pound, preferring cosy and comfortable, interested in shopping/markets (general and Christmas), hearty pub-style meals, short walks, seaside and countryside photo opportunities, history, and theatre.
I know I have mentioned a lot, but this is merely to give readers an idea of our interests when suggesting their recommended area. We have four weeks to cover all our interests, so I realise they may not all be met within a day/night. Thanks in advance.
Gonna be going in October..is this crazy? :
Day one: leave Dublin fairly early get to Doolin to do some kayaking. Then drive to Galway, spend night #1
Day two: check out Connemara, night in Galway #2
Day three: from Galway, do the Ring of Kerry (I know, long drive, but there's no rush, is there?). NIght #3 in Killarney
Day three; check out Cahir and Killkenny castles from Killarney and night #4 spent in Cork
Day four: Drive from Cork to DUblin
Is that too much driving? It will also be my first time driving on the other side of the car/road..but im thinking i'll get used to that pretty fast and shouldn't be a problem?
Any suggestions? Insights? problems with this schedule?
Hi, anyone driving from Macclesfield area to Manchester airport around 4am Friday 9th August, and could do with someone to tag along and keep them awake? Can contribute to petrol money. Thanks, Kim
Anyone have any views on which is nicer next week for a family holiday with older children- bournmouth or exmouth ?

Can anyone recommend a dentist in London for check up and cleaning?
Two forty-something women visiting England at Christmas time - Nov/Dec...what are readers suggestions for things "not to be missed"? Our interests are varied...markets/shopping (not high-rise malls), theatre, good hearty food, museums, history, photo opportunities, countryside. Appreciate any ideas.
Im a 38 yo female from Sydney Australia, looking for someone who may be in the same situation as me.
Ive always wanted to go to Scotland..but havent yet. I have a partner who is not really interested in going..but I would like to take this opportunity to go myself without him while I still have the chance. But Id love to find someone else to travel with. Ive travelled overseas heaps before.
If anyone is interested..hit me up.
P.S. I havent planned anything yet so Im starting from scratch :) I did originally place a post earlier in the year but never got around to it,,but Im looking at going perhaps October or even November..before it gets too cold.
Hi Guys...................We are planning our holidays in the UK and have booked to go to Oban from London, and return by train, going up the East Coast, and coming back by the West Coast.
Does any body know of a site with a route map?
Many thanks in anticapation!
At the end of my trip I have one day left to get from Cardiff to Manchester, and I was thinking about spending a few hours in a nice city on the way. Which one in western England is worth taking a look? I was thinking about Bristol or Birmingham, but I don't know much about them.
Thanks for any input,
Any body got any ideas about a company which will hire a car to 19 year olds? Young cousin and 3 pals from Australia wanting to tour Scotland for about a week, currently in Glasgow and wanting to head off, but struggling to hire a car. Am hoping someone might know something...
I plan to attend culinary school for about six months in London. My school assures me that I would just need a simple 6-month student visa, one that I could get via an immigration stamp when I arrive at the airport (after providing proof of enrollment).
I do however am considering taking a week-long charcuterie course, in which I would need to stay 6 months + 1 week.
I plan to leave the UK for 2 weeks (during the Christmas holiday), which falls within the 6-month period. My question is, do those days I am away count against the 6-month visa period?
