First time travelling to Scotland
Hi . We are travelling to Scotland the last 2 weeks of June. Options to fly into London or into Glasgow. Places we do want to see are: Einborough, Inverness, Isle of Sky. Would like to spend a couple of days in London. Would like to take a train from Edinburgh to London. We feel that it would make the most sense to fly into Glasgow rent a car and travel to Edinburgh and then North. Returning back to Edinburgh and then the train to London and fly out of London to return home. Is it easy to drive around to get to these places? Do we reserve hotels and B&B now? What other places would you recommend for us to see along our route. Our time is limited unfortunately but we are so excited we can get this time to see our families homeland. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also how easy is it to get train tickets or passes for hop on hop off buses in Edinburgh and London. Thank-you in advance.
