    • 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!

      Rental cars

      Ireland Apr 3, 2014 at 6:34 PM

      Has anyone ever rented a economy car in Dublin, Ireland? I have checked some of the rental companies but they come up with such ridiculous rental fees that I can't take them serious. Can you believe 5 or 6,7. or 8 euros a day.
      Let me know if these rental companies are correct, that is if you have any information, please fill me in.

    • US green card, Indian passport: In which country to apply for UK visa

      United Kingdom Mar 25, 2014 at 5:10 PM

      When I applied for a Schengen visa in India, I was told I had to apply from the US since I had been living in the US for over 6 months and was in India for only 2 months. Now I am in the US for over 8 months,  will be going to India in July and would like to apply for a UK visa, stopping at London for a week.

      Can I apply for the UK visa in USA (because I am a Permanent Resident of USA) or must I compulsorily apply from India as I have an Indian Passport?

      3 Weeks in September?

      United Kingdom Apr 13, 2014 at 3:40 AM

      Hello VTers - it's been a while!
      I'm beginning to plan our first adventure for 2 years and I'm so excited that the choice seems quite overwhelming!
      It's just a 3-weeker, but I want an exciting, varied and beautiful itinerary.
      We want to visit somewhere new and I'm looking for help with ideas.
      Currently, Israel & Rwanda are top runners, but Mongolia was a hot favourite for a while, but was dropped because I decided we'd need longer than 3 weeks.
      I love rivers and jungle. I like to walk. My favourite countries are Turkey and Nepal.
      I love little, beautiful lodges without electricity sat in the middle of nowhere.
      I like to cross borders by land.
      Could anyone please give me some ideas for itineraries for Rwanda, Israel or share your favourite travel adventure if it sounds like it might fit the bill? I'm looking for inspiration!
      Big thanks and happy travels :-)

      Accommodations

      London Apr 7, 2014 at 3:40 PM

      Tossing around the idea of picking up a pair of tickets to the Monty Python show at the O2 in July, most probably on the 20th. My son (27) and I (57) would be attending together, and spending 4 or 5 days in London, arriving by air to either Heathrow or Gatwick. Looking for suggestions for accommodations - easy access from/to the airport would be nice, easy access to the O2 (tube okay) even better; room doesn't need to be 5 star, just clean and safe - hotel, hostel, b&b all okay. Thanks!

    • Do you know this place from the description anyone please?

      Hemel Hempstead Apr 7, 2014 at 6:32 AM

      44 years ago when I was 9 I lived in Cockfosters and was taken out for the day with my neighbours family to Hemel. After about 10 miles driving (I think I was told it was 10 miles at the time) we turned right, and immediately over a little bridge across a canal where some canal boats were tied up to the right. In front of us was a massive gravel car park, on the left of which was a large public house or café. That's all I remember. There were a lot of young hippies hanging around with motorbikes. My friends dad went home to get the spare car key as he had locked them in the car. While he was away the hippies helped us to get back in the car with a wire coat hanger, so we sat by the river and waited for the dad to return. He was fuming that he had gone 10 miles home on a bus for nothing! We had a lovely day by the river though. Can't find it on a map now, and I live in Hull but am coming to the area in few weeks and thought I might take a look there.

    • Seeking info on gettting to Bute from Greenock

      by vickimay Online Now Jul 1, 2010 at 11:30 AM

      We'll be in Greenock on Sunday, August 8 (as a kicking off point to Glasgow). However we have friends who are from the Isle of Bute and their family has graciously offered to entertain us for the day. We understand we need to take a ferry. I have a ferry schedule from Wemyss Bay. Is that in Greenock or nearby? Can we walk there from the cruise ship or will we need transportation? If we need transportation what are our options? Appreciate any and all info. Thanks!

      My family will be traveling to Greenock on September14 as part of a transatlantic cruise. We would love to see some of the country side, but do not want to go on ship tours.
      Is it possible to do some of the walks up into the hills in a few hours. Is it easy to get around, can you hire a cab or taxi?
      Any information of things to do that will give us some feel for the country side and be able to do on our own will be appreciated.

    • Cruiseship terminal and Greenock attractions

      by daju22 Online Now May 28, 2006 at 6:58 AM

      Hello,
      We will be visiting Greenock in September. We have a mobility scooter. Would like to get off the ship and walk around Greenock for a couple of hours. What route would you suggest we take and what sights should we look for? Hopefully, there aren't alot of cobblestones as they make for an extremely bumpy ride! :) We have this map of Greenock:

      inverclyde.gov.uk/portal/ind...

      Is the Ocean Terminal where the cruise ships dock?
      Could we walk to the McLean museum?
      Any other places you would recommend for an easy walk?

      Or should we take a tour to Glasgow, the Lochs,or Stirling Castle?
      Sorry for all the questions, but previous passengers say there isn't alot to do here. We usually love to walk around the ports and see local attractions.
      Thank you for your time and help.

      Thanks so much for your help.
