  • Sadly, I'm in a position to reduce my visits to the forum but that just means that I'll be checking for new threads / help requests on a normal schedule. Last year and a half has been fun responding to a wide variety of Scotland travel questions but everything in my brain has pretty much been put in one of my 400+ comments. Name check me as and when needed :)

    Hi! I have been planning my trip for the last 3 weeks and am very excited but frustrated as well.. you'll see, there is just one full day that my boyfriend and I will have available for travelling in Edinburgh (May 26th) , and I haven’t been able to find a tour that includes Stirling Castle and St. Andrews Golf Course. I mean, I have found companies that give that tour, but that day is not in their programme.  Would you be so kind to let me know if you know where can I get this tour for that day?? Or else.. if it is a good idea to do it on our own.. may be train and buses?? Thank a lot!

      Hi Diana, you can certainly visit Stirling Castle on your own. It is easily accessible by train from all of Scotland's cities . It is an easy walk to the castle from the train station. You can also get to St Andrews by public transport but I wouldn't recommend both locations on the same day. Neither of those locations are in Edinburgh however.
