    • Mobile Phone Carrier?

      We plan to purchase our first smart phones before visiting Scotland in June. Are their providers you would recommend and/or any we should avoid? We'll mostly be in Edinburgh and the Highlands.

      (The more I learn, the more excited I become in anticipation of this trip.)

      How sad that this site is closing! The Scotland page has been so welcoming and helpful! Many thanks to all who've responded to my questions.

    • Not much lodging available due to bank holiday.

      Edinburgh Feb 21, 2017 at 8:59 AM

      We are flying in to EDI for the start of a 3-week driving trip around Scotland. We arrive on Thursday 5/27 and will stay near the airport for 1 night (we arrive late in the evening). We thought we would then spend 3 more nights in a B and B in central Edinburgh. However, due to the bank holiday, many of the places where we would like to stay aren't available. So, instead of touring Edinburgh first, we thought we would head out of town and see some other sights/cities first and see Edinburgh at the the end our middle of our stay. Any suggestion of where we should go first since Edinburgh will be crowded? Thank you, Cynthia Burbank, CA

      I'm planning a short trip to Scotland and have need some help. Basically, I have a few days in between Edinburgh and Glasgow and would like to visit the Southern region that has some good scenery and (easy to moderate) hiking / biking trails. After looking at Lonely Planet and on these boards, I am thinking about going to one of the 2 places. Which one would you recommend or are there other suggestions? I was hoping to find some info here but there aren't a lot of things to do tips on either page.

      (I also plan to go to Fort William for a few days, so I don't know if there will be some overlap in stuff to do.)

      Thanks in advance.

      We are planning on spending Thursday night 29, September somewhere in the Borders area. Do you think we will need reservations? Any suggestions for a moderately priced place to stay?
