    • 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.

    • Parking Lots?

      by erinsgrandma Online Now May 1, 2005 at 8:20 AM

      My family and I want to go to Kinnoul Hill by way of the shorter walk which I believe begins inbetween the two bridges. Where would be the best place to park? We'll be driving to Perth from Edinburgh. Thanks in advance.

      Hello Folks; I am travelling to Perth in August for the Clan Leslie Gathering. I need some digital photographs of the main tourist attractions like, Scone Castle, Abernethy Tower, etc. to print in the Clan Leslie International newsletter. Does anyone have photos that they can allow me to use one time in our newsletter?

      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...
