    • Driving from Airport to the City

      Edinburgh Nov 5, 2016 at 12:36 PM

      Arrival June 2015

      If we pick up a rental car in the morning is there a good place to park near the western side of the city? I'm guessing parking then taking public transport is advisable. In hopes of doing so by around noon would there likely be time to visit some attractions in that area? Perhaps the castle if we're alert enough? G-g-grandparents were married in St. Cuthbert's so that's a must. Driving into the city proper seems unwise.

      We're staying in Musselburgh and would like to see something of Edinburgh before heading that way. The route looks quite straightforward but I wonder about late afternoon traffic. Should we wait until sometime after 6:00 PM to avoid rush hour? 

      Many thanks!

    • How to dress, what to see

      Will be in Scotland (afore ye!) and Ireland in March, '06. Need to know how warmly to dress without looking like a total tourist first of all. Going to Edinburgh for sail training research at the University. Then, I want to see what I MUST see before flying to Dublin. Thanks

    • Edinburgh Castle - is it worth it??? Loch Ness Dud???

      by AngusGlen Online Now Mar 22, 2004 at 8:30 AM

      I am planning to hire a car and drive round Scotland for a week / ten days, in July or August this year. I've been reading comments and get the impression that Ed Castle isn't very good and is too crowded? What d oyou think? Where is best to go instead? Also, Loch Ness is high on my agenda but lots say that is rubbish. Is there anything worth seeing in Scotland, or is its best known attractions no good? Any info on car hire, best deals, versus coach travel and problems getting t oway out places would help. Many thanks Angus
