    • Boxing Day

      Edinburgh Nov 13, 2015 at 11:37 AM

      I'll be in Edinburgh over the Christmas holiday and wondering what will be open on Boxing Day. I know the museums and castles are closed, but what about shops and restaurants? Will there be anything for me to do that day?

      Also, on Christmas day I want to eat somewhere nice but not stuffy - kind of old school/traditional with a good, warm environment. I'm staying in New Town and will be alone. Any advice?


    • 3 day trip

      Scotland Nov 3, 2015 at 2:40 PM

      My boyfriend and I be in the Blair Atholl area for a wedding and am wondering if it's worth travelling afield, or whether there's enough to keep you entertained in Blair Atholl for 3 days. We are travelling from London, via Edinburgh and would love to visit a very remote, scenic village with good (mild) walking tours and small, local pubs. Any suggestions please??

      I plan to use megabus to reach Glasgow from Edinburgh in late february for daytrip. It seems the bus will arrive at Buchanan Bus Station. Can I walk from there to some basic attraction or will I need local transport?
      any ideas how to make an itinerary from there considering I'll be there for 5-6 hours?

      Glasgow-Edinburgh...Train or bus, in terms of sightseeing.

      by Santiagues Online Now Dec 2, 2013 at 1:52 PM

      HI there

      I'll de doing a round trip from Glasgow to Edinburgh somewhere in the next Spring.

      I've never been to any of both cities and It seems to me that I don't have any particulary strong reason to choose the train over the bus, and vice versa (time, money, location, etc).

      What I'd like to know from you is if any of those itineraries is better than the other in terms of sightseeing.

      I'll say it in a different way in case my English is too cryptic: Will I see a nicer Scotland landscape from the bus or from the train, neither or both?

      Thanks :)

      We got tickets! So now we have to find a place to stay and where to park.
      (1) Parking: websites suggest Queens Park when Hampden Park has events. Should we take up that suggestion?
      (2) B&B: hotels on internet are either fully booked or charging £100s per night. Any thoughts? Any locals know somewhere? Got a spare room? :)
      Hope someone can help! Thanks, Steve

      Flights from Glasgow to Stornoway

      I will visit Scotland June 11 - 25 and would like to fly from Glasgow to Stornoway during the week of June 18 - 22 2013. I see that if you buy tickets online they are nonrefundable, so it would be better to purchase them once I am in the UK, but wondered how filled up they get during that time. Also if any refundable tickets are available. I checked their trip insurance and it seems that there are too many exceptions that would make it useless.

    • Glasgow in January?

      by shellabell22 Online Now Aug 14, 2012 at 9:53 PM

      Hi everyone. I am thinking of going to Glasgow in mid-January for two weeks. I have a few questions, though... before I get into that, I just want to note that I have been to Glasgow before, but only in the warmer months. Now on with the questions...

      1. How cold can I expect it to be? I am from New York where the winters can be quite cold, snowy, and icy, so I doubt it'll be much cooler than here, but I don't want to be shocked. But... is it going to be too cold for me to walk around?

      2. Because it gets darker there so early in the winter... will it be safe for me, a solo female traveler, to be walking around Glasgow's city center after dark?

      3. Will there be attractions open?

      4. What places do you recommend? What are must-sees?? What things are worth checking out? I'll have two weeks, so I'm hoping there's enough to entertain myself with in winter. I have no problem taking day trips out of Glasgow, but I don't quite understand the public transport there, so nothing too complex, please.
