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?
I will be staying in Melrose for a week this summer...any sights that must be seen in that area?
