    • Highland Games - Piping/dancing competitions

      Scotland May 17, 2015 at 1:51 AM

      Any ideas as to which are the best Highland Games for piping/dancing competitions and music rather than tug o war - I accept that all of them are good. Can flex as to where and when we go but so far my short list is:

      Nairn
      Glenisla - good celidh - looks fun!!
      Bridge of Allan
      Inverary - could be tight as we have to be home by 23July
      Kenmore
      Invergordon
      Lonach
      Argyl
      Cowal
      Pitlochry
      Dundonald

      Any suggestions for caravan sites nearby much appreciated. Many thanks in advance

      Ingliston Park and Ride - long term stay?

      Edinburgh May 15, 2015 at 2:15 AM

      Dear VT members,
      I need to leave my car for 9 days near Edinburgh airport. I have found Ingliston Park and Ride to be very convenient and free. However, they indicate no overnight stay in website. Is there any VT member who left his car there for a long duration? I don't want to find my car towed when I arrive back. If this will certainly happen, where do you suggest to park the car?
      Thank you for your help.

      Driving, parking, hotel during Tattoo

      Edinburgh May 5, 2015 at 11:48 AM

      Unless I can come up with a better idea, we are flying into Edinburgh on Friday morning, picking up a car at the airport, driving to Loch Lomond so my husband can do a swim on Saturday morning, driving back to Edinburgh for the Tattoo Saturday night (tickets are still available as of a few minutes ago for the 7:30 show) and then leaving Sunday morning to head north.

      So if we are coming back from Loch Lomond, is there any place close enough to Edinburgh that we can stay with parking, free or pay, and take a train/bus into Edinburgh? Or maybe a train station where we can park overnight and then continue onto a nearby hotel? Or maybe there's long term cheaper parking at the airport? Obviously hotels are at a premium although I can still find one but I'm also not wild about actually driving into Edinburgh city center since we will already have the opposite side of the road issue to worry about.

      Maybe an airport hotel? Queensferry? Leith? Mainly I'm concerned about ease of finding it and ease of getting into the city center. Thanks.

      Scotland in late August

      Scotland Apr 30, 2015 at 12:43 PM

      Just scheming right now but I think I'm going to try and go back to Scotland this summer. If it works out, Mr. Dabs will be doing a swim race in Loch Lomond in late August and from there I'd like to head north and the two places I've got on my list so far are Eilean Donan castle and the Isle of Skye. And my grandfather was born just outside of Glasgow so I may want to put that in there somewhere. I'm assuming we'd have to fly into Edinburgh, United flies straight into Edinburgh from Chicago for sure in the summer.

      So if we do a round trip from either one and hit those two spots, what other places should I be looking at? Last summer I visited a lot of the castles in and around Edinburgh (Stirling, Linlithgow, Craigmillar) and I did a 1 day bus trip that went to Inveraray, Loch Awe, Doune so no need to revisit any of them.

      Thanks :-)

      Pitlochry and Perthshire

      by lou31 Online Now Sep 22, 2004 at 6:45 AM

      Hi All, I have changed my plans for the Scottish part of my UK holiday but need to settle on an itinery soon so I can start booking things. I am travelling from Australia. Now I've decided I would like to spend more time in Scotland. Am looking at a short stay in Pitlochry. What would I be able to see in regards to flora and fauna in late May?. I would like to go walking etc and may be horse riding. Would 30 pounds a night get me a decent B&B?. Also when is the heather in flower and are there any vters living around the area? Questions, questions I just seem to go on and on......... but would really appreciate any advise. Cheers.................Louise

      Looking for activities in Perth / Pitlochry area!

      by ringleader Online Now Jul 26, 2003 at 11:43 AM

      Hi out there~ We're bringing over a dozen teenagers plus the same number of adults to Scotland. Some kind soul in one of these forums suggested we try Pitlochry for a small taste of the highlands from Edinburgh. What is there to see and do there? I found out that there is a salmon ladder there; would it be worth going to see in late March or early April? Thanks...
