      World Nomad Insurance

      Scotland Jan 2, 2017 at 9:28 PM

      Hi. Has anyone used this for the rental car CDW insurance? In the fine print it says some won't accept it. That is the main reason I am buying travelers insurance. Thanks

    • day trips out of Oban

      Scotland Jan 2, 2017 at 7:11 PM

      Looking for ideas of day trips out of Oban (other than the islands). We won't have a car so will be depending on public transportation. Have an 11 year with us who likes castles, medieval history, and fiddle music.

      THanks,

    • Traveling with baby for 1 month in Scotland. Help please!

      Scotland Dec 31, 2016 at 10:14 AM

      Hi there,

      My husband and I are planning a trip to Scotland in the month of June. As we will be traveling with our baby daughter, we're hoping to find an area to base ourselves for the month (or split our time between two home bases; a couple of weeks in each place). We will be renting a car from Glasgow and returning to Glasgow at the end of the month. We would like to see the Highlands (possibly the Isle of Skye) and castles. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

    • Buses from Kirwall

      by lisaitalymilan Online Now Jun 8, 2011 at 7:50 AM

      Hi, I know the buses exist but I can't find a site which gives me a timetable. Even on Stagecoach or First I need a final destination and I don't know it.
      I just need to know where the buses from Kirwall go to and then I can plan my holiday. We are going in about a week's time.

Kirkwall, Orkneys; Torshavn, Faroes; Reyjavic,Iceland; Narsasuaq,Greenland; Nuuk,Greenland, Nanortalik,Greenland; Cobh,Ireland. Local buses would be fine.
