"Talkndoc" suggested that I start a new thread on Scotland:
Scotland is on my list of "must-see" places. I'd love it if you'd start a thread and share some of your experiences while there. What did you enjoy the most?
Well, I'm following through... I went on a two-week tour of Scotland with Globus, and it was a wonderful experience. We were a group of 44 people, but everyone got along very well.
Scotland is a beautiful area/country, and I chose a two-week tour to see as much of it as possible as a tourist. The itinerary started and ended in Glasgow, but we went up the East Coast and down the West Coast, visiting even many of the islands.
My highlight of the trip was the Military Tattoo in Edinburg, which was included in the tour (I have a "story" on this website on that). The weather was a bit "wet" (August 2012), but we managed.
I'll be glad to answer any question you may have, and you can see my slideshow of the trip at the following address: (make sure you press the "slideshow" button at the top)
