    • Aberfoyle of Callander

      Aberfoyle Dec 19, 2014 at 4:43 AM

      Hello, Thanks everyone for previous assistance. Still having trouble deciding where would be the best place for easy walking - not hiking, as we have to rely on public transport. Have 6 days to experience the countryside in June 2015 and looked at Aberfoyle, Callander or Balloch (transport maybe more accessible) Also thought maybe spend 4 days walking and then travel to Isle of Mull and experience a little of island life for 2 days instead of 6 days in one place. Of course 1 day would be taken up travelling. Don't know the area as we are from Australia. Appreciate any suggestions or advice. Thank you

We are leaving Heathrow at 1120hrs and arriving O'Hare 1345hrs thro American but operated by BA. We have 1hr and 30mins between flights - is this enough time? Both flights arrive and depart from T5. If time is tight can we ask a member of staff for assistance in order to connect with flights ? Does anyone know the procedure for a missed flight connection? We booked the flights thro American Airlines. I assume we just both clear security and not immigration.We are both UK citizens.

      Rail and rental car question

      London Dec 19, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      I want to travel from London to Truro by train and rent a car from Enterprise on March 17th. I want to be picked up at the train station and dropped off at the airport. The Enterprise man's email does not give me a confirmation number - he seems to want me to buy a ticket on the train first. The National Rail Enquiries - Journey Planner will only give me train times up to 2015 March 12th. But‎

      is perfectly willing to sell me a ticket for the 17th. How can I get a car reservation confirmation without a train time (is there a website I can go to?), and should I go ahead and buy a ticket through 'thetrainline' people or wait a week and get one from National Rail?

    • London-Salisbury/Bath-Cardiff-Edinburgh-Dublin

      United Kingdom Dec 7, 2014 at 4:40 PM

      I have a convention excuse to visit London in April 2015, and since Husband and I have never been off North America we're looking into making a trip of it. I tried to build-my-own tour, but I couldn't get it under $10,000 USD for both of us for 14 days with airfare. H suggests looking into tours, but we can't find many that include Cardiff. It seems the biggest price-busters are car rental for the London-to-Salisbury/Bath-to-Cardiff-to-Edinburgh transportation ($420 USD total), London and Edinburgh hotels (£105 and £125 respectively, breakfast included), and estimated food budgets (£60 per person a day in London and Edinburgh, £50 in Salisbury/Bath and Cardiff, and €75 in Dublin). Am I grossly overestimating food costs in those locals for two meals (every hotel chosen has breakfast included)? Any suggestions for reasonable hotels in London and Edinburgh that are cheaper, or transportation options that will suit our needs and be more affordable than a car rental? Or suggestions of tour companies we should be looking at? Thanks!

    • Travelling to London August 2015. Cost of living ??

      London Dec 11, 2014 at 2:14 PM

      Hello everyone, how are you?

      I'm travelling to London for a 7 days holiday, next summer (August) with a friend. And as I lived there from 1996 to 2007, I know how expensive London can be for a tourist, compared to any other city in Europe (unless, of course, you from Norway or Japan). So this time I'll go as a tourist, as there are things I never did or visited when I lived there.

      Since it's been 7 years I left London (by the way I miss London so much), I don't actually know what is the cost of living in London for a budget tourist at this moment in time. I've already booked the flight, accommodation and London Pass, for London attractions + Travelcard which costed me a total of €700 (about £560) all inclusive.

      Having done that (flight, accommodation, pass and travel card), what remains is food, drink and entertainment. So I was thinking on a (low) budget of £60/£80 (€76/€100) per day (that's £420(€530) for 7 days). What do you think? Can we live on or spend our holiday with this budget for a week? We obviously won't be spending £60/£80 a day, everyday. Surely we'll go clubbing a couple of times, some evenings we'll go to a pub or a bar with music and stuff like that, and then we'll get some souvenirs for friends and family back home!

      Also we'd like to go to see Stonehenge (if we can squeeze some time in), on a day trip. What is the fastest way to get there and how much do you does it costs?

      Thank you in advance friends!

      Take care !!!

      Inverness to Oban on a Sunday

      by travelfrosch Online Now May 25, 2013 at 10:34 AM

      Hello all, it appears I made a bit of a tactical error planning our upcoming trip to Scotland - taking public transit on a Sunday. We were planning to take the bus from Inverness to Fort William, then change to a bus to Oban... but the bus Fort William to Oban doesn't run on Sundays. Oops...

      Looking at various resources, it seems we have 3 choices. The first, suggested by Citylink's website, is to take the bus to Tyndrum and change there for the bus to Oban. The second, suggested by the Travel Scotland app, suggests the train to Crianlarich, changing there for the train to Oban (this would involve about a 2-hour layover in Fort William right around lunchtime - not the worst option in the world). The third, also suggested by Travel Scotland, would be to take the bus from Inverness to Spean Bridge, then changing for the train to Crianlarich (and on to Oban).

      Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!

So I am now thinking of going from Oban by bus (or train) to the Isle of Skye, but all I can find on the net is a bus to Fort William at 08:40, is this the only bus?
      Also from Fort William, is it best to go to Isle of Skye via Kyle of Lochalsh or Mallaig? Im thinking Mallaig at the moment.

      Haunted Flat on High Street?

      I just spent a week in a flat on High Street, Oban, and there was some serious supernatural activity going on on the final evening: repeated knocking on the inside of a locked cupboard, cold air currents swirling around in the hallway outside the cupboard door and a general feeling of unease. Plus on the previous night, something banged hard against my bedroom door (located right next to the locked cupboard), like it was trying to get into the room.
