    • Mobile Phone Carrier?

      Scotland Jan 27, 2017 at 9:26 PM

      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 am going to stay Isle of Skye, so plan to visit Portree (here some photo's: scotlandpictures.net/isle-of... ), which destination you also suggest me to visit?

    • Glasgow to Portree in one day?

      by AmyLeeParker Online Now Apr 20, 2009 at 3:35 PM

      We are set to pick up our rental around 9am on the 7th of Sept at the Glasgow Airport. I am wanting to take the ferry across at Mallaig to Skye and get into Portree. Is this possible? I know the roads are very narrow around this area. Or is it better to go up to Fort William and then across the bridge?
