      Scotland May 17, 2015 at 1:51 AM

      Any ideas as to which are the best Highland Games for piping/dancing competitions and music rather than tug o war - I accept that all of them are good. Can flex as to where and when we go but so far my short list is:

      Nairn
      Glenisla - good celidh - looks fun!!
      Bridge of Allan
      Inverary - could be tight as we have to be home by 23July
      Kenmore
      Invergordon
      Lonach
      Argyl
      Cowal
      Pitlochry

      Hi everyone,

      I have booked flights with Singapore Airlines from Edinburgh to Singapore next month. I arrive at Heathrow Terminal 5 at 0925on a BA flight and leave from Terminal 2 with Singapore Airlines at 1130 so just over 2 hours connection time.
      Will this be enough? I'm not sure if I can check my suitcase through from Edinburgh as I don't think there is a Singapore Airlines check in there.(The BA ticket was bought through them though.)
      I'm panicking a little as, although I know Singapore Airlines will be obliged to get me back if I don't make the connection, all the later flights seem to be full and I have an onward connection to New Zealand that I need to get.
      I'd really appreciate any advice. 3

      Where to stay

      Wales Mar 1, 2015 at 8:32 AM

      Hi,
      we'd love to visit Wales over Easter for a week and were wondering where to stay to make the most of it. Our idea is to see both the Brecon Beacons NP and the Pembrokeshire Coast NP, so we'd need accomodation close by. Ideally, there is some small picturesque village with a nice pub, lots of old houses, magnificent views and of course a cosy B&B. It's probably better to stay in both places for about three days each instead of choosing just one base - or is it? Our interests are hiking/walking, but we are also very likely to just drive around by car and discover the area. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

The logistics of my kit took 2 weeks of planning and although some people think my kit may be over the top, I do not care as I will be prepared for almost any scenario. I have to do 2 routes on the same day and was planning to do the Snowdon ranger and the Rhyd Ddu path starting at 8am, straight up and down, of course depending on weather. Not doing this to prove a point, just set myself a personal challenge.

      3-4 days in Wales

      Wales Apr 27, 2014 at 8:18 AM

      As usual I have less time than I'd like to explore an area but I can always go back, right? We're traveling in mid August which I'm guessing is peak season and this is my rough idea right now

      Monday we have tickets to Highclere in the morning and will head to Wales I'm guessing midday, some possibilities for the afternoon, depending on timing getting out of Highclere, are Tintern Abbey (open til 6) or Caerphilly (open til 6). If we were to reach either of these by 4pm, could they be reasonably visited in a couple of hours? Tintern appears to be a slightly shorter drive. Monday night I've prebooked a hotel in Cardiff that can't be changed

      Tuesday options include Caerphilly if we don't stop on Monday, visiting sights in Cardiff, Kidwelly Castle, Carreg Cennan, a drive on the Gower Peninsula. Mr. Dabs ears perked up when I mentioned the Big Pit Coal Museum north of Cardiff. Overnight? Not sure yet but maybe in the general area of either Kidwelly or Carreg Cennan

      Wednesday drive north, is the west coast route more scenic than the interior route? I have a cancellable reservation at Ruthin Castle but it's looking like it's not going to work. Portmeirion looks like an interesting stop, Caernarfon looks interesting, Harlech looks interesting. That route will go through part of Snowdonia National Park. If I change my overnight, maybe closer to Conwy?

      Thursday Conwy Castle in the morning, maybe Bodnant Gardens and then make our way to Liverpool. There's nothing particular I'd like to see in Liverpool, more of a I'd like to say I stopped there so we may just overnight near there and move on Friday morning. Since we have a car, we'll probably look for something just outside Liverpool

      Friday morning Blackpool, Mr. Dabs wants to see it and since he's driving me around England and Wales, I'd like to oblige. Friday afternoon, drive to Manchester, drop the car and head to London by train, just going to sleep there so a late train is fine

      I know I'm going to have to cut some of these things, I'm also concerned that at some point I'll have castle overload. I was looking at an explorer pass that had almost everything on my list on it so perhaps we can stop at a couple of the castles, take a couple of photos but not spend 2-3 hours at each one.

      Have I missed anything really special? Of my Tuesday options, are there any you recommend more highly than the others? Kidwelly got on my list because of Monty Python originally but I'll be seeing Doune up near Edinburgh earlier in the trip so it's not a must. The rest of the trip is 4 1/2 days in Edinburgh, Lyme Park, Chatsworth House, Highclere (aka Downton Abbey, I have tickets) and one full day in London which I've visited many times.

      A good route from the Kidwelly/Carreg Carren area to Portmeirion? Is there a nice coastal drive? A drive that passes through some interesting towns? It looks to be out 3 hours driving by the fastest route but maybe by that point we'd rather see some scenery as opposed to more sights.

      My family and I are going to make a trip to the UK in May. We are wanting to see Tintern Abby. Is this something that can be explored in an afternoon or should we plan more time?
