    • 3 nights in Skye VS 2 nights in Skye + 1 night in Inverness

      Isle of Skye Apr 11, 2014 at 1:48 PM

      My husband and I are arriving into Edinburgh on July 8th. We spend 2 nights there - and then rent a car and the plan is to drive to Skye on the 10th. We have 3 nights booked in Skye at the Rowan Cottage Tree House. We then have a flight out from Inverness to London on the 13th at 2PM.

      My question is do you think we should do 3 nights in Skye or should we spend the last night in Inverness since we have a flight out from there on the 13th afternoon.

      Also any suggestions on good routes from Edinburgh to Skye and any recommendations for what distilleries to visit perhaps on the way to Skye? My husband really enjoys Scotch where as I can be the designated driver.

      Thanks in advance for all your suggestions!

    • 3 weeks in Edinburgh for a single 40 year old woman who likes culture and night life

      Edinburgh Yesterday

      I am planning to stay in Edinburgh for about 3 weeks, and want to get a taste for what it would be like to live there. I may check out some advanced education programs, and also want to do the touristy things, and enjoy some pubs and clubs. I would like a central location that feels pedestrian friendly, with lots of shops, restaurants, and easy access to the cultural sights. Night life for people in their 30s and up would be great to find, too. Budget is middle of the road. Where might I stay?

    • Scottisn Referendum & Impact on Tourism

      Scotland Mar 28, 2014 at 2:18 AM

      We are thinking of visiting Scotland around the Referendum date - possible itinerary - Tobermorr/Sky/Stornoway /Pitterweem = touring in a small caravan, avoiding all major cities - and staying on 5 star sites. What concerns us is will we be welcome as English tourists or is there liable to be some ill feeling towards us. We are completely neutral in our views. All we do know is that Scotland is truly beautiful and we wish we'd discovered it earlier in our lives

      any ideas?

      by iaint Online Now May 21, 2008 at 11:32 AM

      I may have an overnight trip to Aberdeen next weekend. I've stayed in 4 hotels there over the last 5-6 years (Hilton, Holiday Inn Express, Premier Inn & Patio), and wouldn't rush back to any of them. Probably fine if you've just had 3 weeks on an oil rig, but thats as far as it goes.

      I've looked at a few websites, and can't find anything appealing except maybe the Marriott in Dyce. Any ideas anyone?

      I hate "traditional" Scottish places, I'm OK with chains (budget or not) and B&Bs. Like boutique places too.

      So long as its clean, quiet, welcoming and non smoking, I'm flexible on price (on my last trip to the NE I paid £27 bed & breakfast in the local British Legion Club and it was fine; in Brussels last week I paid a good bit more for Le Meridien).

    • Aberdeen for the summer

      Myself and a couple of friends are thinking of working for the summer in Britain. There're a few cities we are considering going to and to help us narrow our (very long) list I was just wondering if anyone would like to offer some input as to whether or not Liverpool would be a good choice for the summer.
      We'd be looking for somewhere where
      - Job availibility won't be a problem
      - A decent nightlife for 20 year olds
      - Cheap cost of living, or at least, not expensive
      - There's a nice amount of touristy things to do.

      Hi Everyone.

      I'm moving to Aberdeen in August as I've got a job offer over there. My work place would be in Dyce. I need some advice on
      1. where, and
      2. how I can search for accommodation around.

      I'd like to rent a one bedroom apartment, hopefully something below 300 or even 250 pounds per month.

      Alternatively, To be honest, I wouldn't mind staying in a multiple bedroom apartment as well, as long as I can get a private room for myself. If this is the case, what sort of monthly rental can I expect?

      Basically my criteria would be
      1. low cost
      2. safe
      3. near to Dyce

      Please advice yea!

      Thanks a lot everyone!

      i will move to Aberdeen in early october, and i will stay there, i guess, for some years. I will live alone for the first time, and I don't speak a good english yet.
      So, i need some informations in order to be prepared to what i will find.
      Is it possible to find a one bedroom flat for less then 400 pounds?
      How much costs life (food, taxes...)?
      How is Aberdeen nightlife? I guess there are some pubs...
      How much beer costs?
      Is it easy to make friends there?
      What kind of wheather will I find? I don't know what to bring. I think it will be different from italian wheather. Here in Milan we have less or more 30°C in the summer and 0°C in the winter, and it doesn't rain so much.
      I hope I will enjoy life in Scotland.

      As I'll be going on training in Vienna later, would it be better to leave shopping for Vienna, Austria to buy good quality cloths and shoes at a more reasonable price?
