I was born there, (so I'm biased). I love the place and return home as often as possible.

I was there in 99 and again last year.

Ireland is a must, Cornwall too is good if you love celtic studies, Wales too.
London is great if you love English history as I do.

Scotland is a must if the weather is good, Skye and Iona are beautiful.

Only other advice i would give is.....take me with you! biggrin.gif

yes I was born and bred in Scotland and would highly recommend September for holidays, that`s when most scots take theirs if given the choice biggrin.gif

Maybe Rose didn't but I sure did!! Was there this past March.

Stayed in Aberfoyle, at a townhouse rental, right on the lake. The townhouse was centrally located for getting around Scotland.

Couldn't get enough of "Old Town" Edinbugh. Can't wait to go back and stay at a B&B in that area for the whole vacation. All those alley ways and pubs and little hidden away shops were the best. Deacon Brodie's Pub is tops on my list also.

The Highlands, Glen Coe, Isle of Skye, Falkirk Wheel, Loch Loman and Stirling certainly can eat up a lot of film and batteries. Outstanding scenery!!

I think "Old Town" Edinburgh is on the vacation list for 2008. 2007 already has Ireland on the schedule and should be an exciting trip, since some of my relatives will be joining me for this trip.

This is still my favorite pictures out of all of the 900+ pictures we took in Scotland, Eileen Donan Castle.

Hi Mike smile.gif I'm so pleased you had such a wonderful time here! I too love Edinburgh - so much nicer than Glasgow!! I've travelled most of Scotland in my childhood but a lot of the memories are muddles as I couldn't put names to places and memories. I've been to Stirling briefly, it wasn't my favourite of cities either sad.gif I've been to Aberfoyle once too - what a beautiful place, and somewhere I'm dying to return to explore more smile.gif We've got a Deacon Brodie's in Dundee smile.gif I swear my daughter must be the only person to fall and break her toe when ENTERING the pub, stone cold sober! lol.gif

Your photographs are wonderful too smile.gif you're right - you could take so many and never have the same one twice!

Lynda,

if you go back to Aberfoyle, do not eat at the restaurant at the split in the road that goes to Loch Loman. The food is terrible.

Do stop by the butcher shop next to the woolen outlet in the middle of town. Some excellent cuts and a nice selection of home made bridies and such. Really nice husband and wife own the place. They couldn't do enough for us when we stopped in.

If you need a place to stay at, try the Inversnaid Hotel on Loch Loman, http://www.lochsandglens.com/hotel.asp?HotelID=450 . Take the road from downtown Aberfoyle and keep driving for about 15 miles till you reach a dead end at Loch Loman and your at the hotel. The picture below, is the view from the hotel.

I am planning a trip to Scotland next year. Just wondering who have been to the UK already and your experiences there!

I arrived in the UK in the mid-90s. I haven't left.

I didn't make it to Scotland until 2004, and that is a regret. I go every year now, sometimes twice a year and I plan to move there.

So, I'd say my experience here has been fantastic. biggrin.gif
