I went to Scotland a few years ago with a friend and we just kind of moved around by ourselves. I feel I got to see quite a bit, but there are some things I didn't get to see. Now, next year I want to take my mother, as she has always wanted to see Scotland, but she's getting a little older and I worry about making her walk overly much, so I was thinking about relying a lot on the tours that are sold. Will that be a good way to see Scotland? I worry it will only be places filled with tourists and we won't get much of the authentic Scottish experience, but on the other hand I worry about my mother doing too much and not enjoying herself. What's everyone's thoughts on this? Thanks!!!
