    • Stromness or Kirkwall for music

      Orkney Yesterday

      Would it be best to stay in Stromness or Kirkwall if we want to enjoy traditional music? We have a car but would like to be able to walk to pubs or other places to enjoy music.

      10 days in Scotland...where to spend it??

      Scotland Jan 15, 2015 at 4:35 PM

      Hello all! I will be in Scotland in late April for 10 days. I know we are flying into and out of Edinburgh, but other than that, nothing planned. We DO NOT want to rent a car for the whole trip and want to use public transit to see the best parts of the highlands that we can. Are there particular towns that you recommend via train up in the highlands? We prefer villages and small towns to cities. We love the natural beauty, waterfalls, lakes, etc, over the museums and such. Any town recommendations are appreciated. Thank you!

    • 5 weeks in Scotland for a one time trip of a lifetime

      Scotland Jan 17, 2015 at 7:25 AM

      My husband and I are planning a 5-week trip to explore Scotland in Sept. and early Oct. 2015. I have longed to visit Scotland for a long time, possibly because of my Scottish ancestry. Three months ago I asked for input for a 3-4 week trip to Scotland. As a result of the great feedback we decided to expand our once in a lifetime trip to Scotland to 5 weeks. We are in our mid 60's. We enjoy hiking, natural beauty, history, music, meeting people and soaking up the culture of an area. We plan to rent a car and stay in B & B's or small cottages. We are flexible and realize we won’t do everything we are interested in because we also want to relax and just soak in the beauty. Our plan is to start in Edinburgh for 5 days: 1 day to recover, 3 days to explore Edinburgh, and 1 to explore the western border area. We stay in St Andrew's at the “Old Course Hotel and Spa” for 3 days, to explore the beautiful little towns in the area and play golf. Three days in Dunkeld (we heard they have wonderful music there) to explore Royal Deeside and Fife; going to the Highland Games in Pitlochry on Sept 12th. Onto Inverness for 3 days, exploring the west side of the Cairngorms on the way. We hope to catch the last couple of days of the Blas Music Festival there. We will explore the Inverness area and travel down the east and west side of Loch Ness. We head to Orkney for 3 days via the Black Isle area. We hope to explore the island and enjoy the music there. We plan to explore the Northern Highlands and coastal areas on our way to Plockton with a night in Durness and 2 nights in Ullapool. We will spend 3 nights in Plockton and explore the Applecross Peninsula and drive the A87 visiting Eilean Donan. Next we head to the Isle of Skye for 3 days of exploring. Onto Oban for 5 nights via Mallaig and Ft. Williams. From Oban we will have day trips to the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, Glen Coe, and Mull. On our way to Glasgow for 4 nights we will go south of Oban to Kilmartin and Inveraray. We would explore Glasgow and take a day trip to Stirling. We could also take day trips to Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and to the Ary and Glasgow area. We would appreciate any ideas or suggestions.

    • Best places to eat and drink in a November weekend in Loch Lomand???

      by kirstymckie Online Now Nov 6, 2008 at 7:02 AM

      Hi there,

      I'm traveling up from London to spend a weekend in Loch Lomond for my boyfriend's birthday. We're staying at the Culag Guesthouse (near Luss) which I've read rave reviews about. Arriving on Friday lunchtime and departing on Sunday evening.

      I really want to plan a relaxing and romantic weekend and was hoping for some tips on nice restaurants and cosy pubs which we should visit. I heard certain things may be closed at this time of year - is that true?

      We don't have a car and will be doing everything on foot. Happy to walk reasonable distances, weather permitting, but would also be great to know what there is close by.

      Thanks in advance,

      Kirsty

      Hi I'm doing a 10 day trip around scotland in January (cold I know)
      10 days is not enough I know, as theres so many places I want to go
      I arrive in Edinburgh jan 18th then Inverness 20th
      and I need to be Tobermory on the 25th early as I'm organising a suprise birthday for my girlfriend

      my problem is I've got only three days to split between Isle of Skye and Loch Lomond
      I was wondering which of the two I could see in one day

      or should I just scrap Inverness and spend two days in both

      any information gratfully recieved
      thank you

      Travelodge at Dumbarton

      by bct341 Online Now Jul 19, 2006 at 9:06 PM

      Knowing that travelodges are cheap budget hotels..I was wondering if anyone knew how the Travelodge was at Dumbarton. Just looking for a decent place to stop and sleep (and a place that I can arrive late). Most Travelodges have some pretty bad reviews but for some reason I could not find any reviews for this particualr Travelodge.

      What activities are there in Loch Lomond?

      by ringleader Online Now Jul 26, 2003 at 11:38 AM

      Hi out there~ We're bringing over a dozen teenagers plus the same number of adults to Scotland in 2004. In planning our trip, we decided we would like to do something at Loch Lomond. What is there to see and do there? Also, are there any recommended boating trips of about 1-2 hours? Thanks...
