    • 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

      Glasgow-Edinburgh...Train or bus, in terms of sightseeing.

      Glasgow Dec 2, 2013 at 1:52 PM

      HI there

      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?

      Thanks :)

      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? :)

      Inverness to Oban on a Sunday

      Oban May 25, 2013 at 10:34 AM

      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!

      Flights from Glasgow to Stornoway

      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.

    • Glasgow in January?

      Glasgow Aug 14, 2012 at 9:53 PM

      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.
