    • 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!

    • Taking a ferry with a rental car

      Scotland Apr 13, 2014 at 2:57 PM

    • 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

    • Selkirk to Stirling

      by KALtmcm Online Now Sep 2, 2013 at 9:16 AM

      My husband and I (we're from U.S.) will be visiting Selkirk in the Borders in June 2014 for a few days. We want to go from Selkirk to Stirling on Sat, June 28. We need to be in Stirling by 10:00 a.m. for Bannockburn event. We hope to avoid renting a car. What are our options for transportation and about how long does it take to get to Stirling? We'll be in Stirling for a couple of days and then go on to Edinburgh.

      What to see on a short break

      by Andrew_W_K Online Now Oct 29, 2009 at 1:17 PM

      I'm off to Stirling for a couple of days in December and I'll be checking out Stirling castle, the Wallace monument and going up to Callander.
      What else should I not miss. I've looked at a lot of internet sites so don't need pointing in that direction.
      I'd like someone from the region or who knows the region well to make some suggestions. There seems so much and I have so little time.

    • Bus or Train??

      by Raahat Online Now Mar 26, 2008 at 12:53 AM

      Hi all,

      I am considering going from Edinburgh to Stirling in the first week of April and am getting a Rail fare of GBP6.50 and a Bus fare of GBP5.40

      As the prices are almost the same, I was wondering which route would be more scenic. The time of travel would be early morning like 9am or so.

      Shopping in Stirling

      by lou31 Online Now Sep 3, 2004 at 5:17 AM

      I have planned a holiday in Scotland [ next year ] and have chosen Stirling as a home base. I will be arranging my accomodation with a travel agency [b&b's] but would like some local knowledge on day tours. For example to the Highlands etc. Are there any day trips from Stirling and will it be possible to book when I get there or should I make the arrangements before I leave Australia. Also I saw on the net about a shop in a village somewhere outside Stirling where you could buy hand made woollen clothing. Does this place exist or was I just dreaming about it! I intend to buy some nice woollen garments in Scotland and was wondering about how much I'd pay for say a jumper or scarf etc. from a department store. Thanks in advance. Cheers....................Louise

      I plan on touring Stirling Castle on my way to the Isle of Skye. Since I will be driving to Mallaig to catch the ferry the same day, I am wondering how much time I should reasonably allocate for touring Stirling Castle before continuing on my journey.

      Boat tours in southeast Scotland

      by ringleader Online Now Jul 11, 2003 at 9:59 AM

      We'll be bringing our high school handbell choir - a group of 30 - to the Edinburgh area in 2004. Right now we're trying to plan a few days of touring. So far we have a half day in the borders (Jedburgh and Floors Castle), a day and a half in Edinburgh (Castle, Royal Mile, Princes Street, Holyrood), and a day in Stirling. We are wondering if there are any suggestions as to what is nice for a day of touring on a boat. How about it?!
