Early April toddler friendly trip - Budget?
hello! I’m planning a trip to Scotland with 2 young kids - turning 2 and 4. Scotland is a beautiful country and we are thinking of traveling from Asia up to Scotland before my little one turns 2. I am having trouble estimating the Budget and trying to see if the trip is feasible. I need help.
Suppose i have 14 days including flying in and out, and my trip objectives are:
1) live in a cabin/caravan/treehouse/cottage
2) get close to wildlife - walk, observe, take photos, picnic and be happy
3) rolling hills with a cottage house ... just like those storybook i read when i was young
4) some train rides and some driving (Husband can drive - but limit to not more than 2 hours?)
5) visit interesting museum as an educational trip
6) Sunday or Farmers market and villages with friendly people
8) farms and get acquainted with the Farmers and animals
i have trouble zooming down where to go and also not sure how much do i need to Budget minimally. Can i seek you advice on:
1) Which part of Scotland is suitable for us to explore, based on above objectives
2) how much should we min Budget a day?
3) i read Scotland weather is unpredictable, hmmm so is early April will it be snowing or rainy?
