    • 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

      A place to stay for the Open.

      by Maxiediva Online Now Jun 19, 2005 at 1:54 AM

      Hi everyone,

      My friend will be in St. Andrews to catch the Open in July and he needs a place to stay for the night. As a matter of fact, I need to know someone who's from St. Andrews to help me with my golf tour plans. No frills just the thrills. He'll help out any way possible to have a place to shower, change and sleep. And he plays golf (really well too) so there'll be plenty of golf talk. Thanks.

      Cheers,
      Maxie

      A group of 13-18 yr. olds visiting St. Andrews?

      by ringleader Online Now Feb 7, 2004 at 12:03 AM

      I know St. Andrews is a coastal area, and have heard about famous golfing, and know about the St. Andrews Abbey and Castle. Is there anything for kids in the area? Our handbell choir will be ringing a concert in Kinross at Rachel's House (for terminally ill children), so we're looking within a reasonable distance from there. Originally we were thinking of trying Pitlochry, but think that is a bit too high as they'll be "tasting" the highlands on the day trip to Ft. William.
