What public transport is available during the night?

I'll de doing a round trip from Glasgow to Edinburgh somewhere in the next Spring.
I've never been to any of both cities and It seems to me that I don't have any particulary strong reason to choose the train over the bus, and vice versa (time, money, location, etc).
What I'd like to know from you is if any of those itineraries is better than the other in terms of sightseeing.
I'll say it in a different way in case my English is too cryptic: Will I see a nicer Scotland landscape from the bus or from the train, neither or both?
Hey, I am travelling through Scotland at the moment to find the best place to live... At the moment I am in Oban. Who would like to go into a pub, a restaurant, cinema or ding some trips with me?
Hope to hear from you soon!
When are the peak and off-peak seasons for travelling to Oban???
We got tickets! So now we have to find a place to stay and where to park.
(1) Parking: websites suggest Queens Park when Hampden Park has events. Should we take up that suggestion?
(2) B&B: hotels on internet are either fully booked or charging £100s per night. Any thoughts? Any locals know somewhere? Got a spare room? :)
Hope someone can help! Thanks, Steve
Are there any B&B's close by that hubby and I can stay for one night? They all seem to be a ten minute drive away..
the best way to visit Islay? Hire a car for 1 week or use a taxi?
What is the building looking over the water on top of the Hill from the sea front?
I'll be staying at a guesthouse in the vicinity of Albert Road, and the proprietors say there's street parking or a local pay and display car park. How likely is it that I'll be able to find street parking in August? Does anyone have any tips for a safe place to park without paying? Thanks very much.
Can anyone recommend a nice typical restaurant in center Glasgow?
We will be flying into Glasgow on August 26th to begin our honeymoon. We'll be heading up to Loch Lomond first, and we are looking for a great company to use for our transfer from the Airport to our hotel in Loch Lomond. After an overnight flight, we just want to be able to relax on our ride up there and would like to use a reputable company with great prices! Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! :)
It appears we'll need to take a taxi from Glasgow Queen Street Station, including Minifrosch. What are the rules as to child seats in taxis, and how easy/difficult is it to find a taxi with a child seat (if required)? Thanks!
Hi does anyone know any good hotels to stay in Glasgow?
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!
What is the best airline to fly with to Argentina? I am looking for something with as few stop overs as possible.

Hello, I am travelling to Scotland next weekend, and am looking for information about the location of the tenement museum, I am interested in social history. There is also an open museum and a transport museum in Partick.
I am hoping to have a day in the city and would be interested in finding a good pub serving local beer and Scottish food (but not touristy). Are any local VTets in the area?
how far and what is the cost of a taxi to ayr travel lodge , thanx
I will visit Scotland June 11 - 25 and would like to fly from Glasgow to Stornoway during the week of June 18 - 22 2013. I see that if you buy tickets online they are nonrefundable, so it would be better to purchase them once I am in the UK, but wondered how filled up they get during that time. Also if any refundable tickets are available. I checked their trip insurance and it seems that there are too many exceptions that would make it useless.
We are off to 3 night stay in a lodge at Cameron House Hotel next month and would appreciate any hidden gems that we can either walk or drive to. Proposed so far for our party (granny & grandad, mrs, me & the kids - 3&1):
Walk to Lomond Shores/take a cruise with Sweeney's
Fireworks on the 5th
Drive over to Helensburgh/Faslane for old times sake
Hi everyone. I am thinking of going to Glasgow in mid-January for two weeks. I have a few questions, though... before I get into that, I just want to note that I have been to Glasgow before, but only in the warmer months. Now on with the questions...
1. How cold can I expect it to be? I am from New York where the winters can be quite cold, snowy, and icy, so I doubt it'll be much cooler than here, but I don't want to be shocked. But... is it going to be too cold for me to walk around?
2. Because it gets darker there so early in the winter... will it be safe for me, a solo female traveler, to be walking around Glasgow's city center after dark?
3. Will there be attractions open?
4. What places do you recommend? What are must-sees?? What things are worth checking out? I'll have two weeks, so I'm hoping there's enough to entertain myself with in winter. I have no problem taking day trips out of Glasgow, but I don't quite understand the public transport there, so nothing too complex, please.
Is it possible to get to the Thistle Hotel from the Glasgow airport by public transportation or would a taxi be our best bet. There will only be two adults and we each have only one rolling bag. Thank you for your help.
I am traveling with my four children, ages 21-14, to Scotland. We want to visit the Duart Castle but wasn't sure whether it was worth taking our rental car to the Isle so we could travel around. Or, just book the package which includes ferry passage, coach and entrance to the castle. Are there beaches near the castle to walk to?
Suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
Can anyone tell me which bus company covers the Campbelltown to Glasgow route.
Are any of the various pubs, cafes or restaurants in Tobermory non-smoking? Or at the very least have a non-smoking area that is sufficiently distant from the smoking crowd so that one does not inhale second hand smoke?
I am arriving in May on a cruise to Glasgow for the day only. We have a few different excursions to pick from. What would be best to see....stay in Glasgow for the day or travel to Loch Lommond and Inveraray Castle? So much to do...so little time.
We have been told by our travel agent that rental car companies will not allow their cars to take the ferry to the Isle of Mull. Does anyone have experience with this issue?
I'm taking my wife up to Glasgow in March. It's her 50th!
We're staying at the Hotel du Vin and eating there on the Friday.
We need to find somewhere to eat with the extended family on the Saturday. There could be just 8 people or there may be 20!
I suggested an Indian restaurant. Ideas?
My sister-in-law suggested the Art Lovers House but that's a bit of a tradition with my wife's family.
The 'Chip? Too expensive for most!
Any other ideas in or around Glasgow?
My wife's 50th is coming up in March and I'm treating her to a couple of nights in the Hotel du Vin, Glasgow.
One of the 'special' experiences that I'm looking into are the seaplane flights from Glasgow to the lochs with dinner at the end of it before being driven home.
Can you recommend a company?
Is there another 'wow' experience that you would recommend?
