    • 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!

    • Scottisn Referendum & Impact on Tourism

      Scotland Mar 28, 2014 at 2:18 AM

      We are thinking of visiting Scotland around the Referendum date - possible itinerary - Tobermorr/Sky/Stornoway /Pitterweem = touring in a small caravan, avoiding all major cities - and staying on 5 star sites. What concerns us is will we be welcome as English tourists or is there liable to be some ill feeling towards us. We are completely neutral in our views. All we do know is that Scotland is truly beautiful and we wish we'd discovered it earlier in our lives

      Many thanks

      Edinburgh in August

      Scotland Feb 9, 2014 at 9:02 PM

      I was thinking of adding a few days in Edinburgh onto my August trip, I haven't booked my air yet but the week that I'll be there with my husband is Aug 15-24. So I can add some days onto the beginning (probably the 10th-14th) or I can add onto the end (25th-31st). Just looking quickly I noticed that not only is the Fringe Festival going on for the 1st-25th but also the Military Tattoo from the 1st-23rd. Doesn't that make it crazy busy having both of them at once? Or are they really part of the same festival? I can squeak out a couple more days with the 25th-31st but if the Tattoo and Fringe Festival are amazing, then I can afford to pay the inflated prices.

      Rooms, of course, are already being sold at a fortune even with plenty of availability. If my primary reason for going was to visit a couple of the castles in the surrounding area (Stirling, Craigmillar, Linlithgow are possibilities), might it make sense to stay outside of Edinburgh? Or would it be better to pay the extra if I want to see part of the Festival at night? I've made a cancellable reservation just in case I opt for the earlier dates, I do need to find some flights at some point
