Planning a trip

Hi, I'm from Portugal.

 I bought some tickets on promotion and until finally I go to Scotland  :D  B)<3
Tickets are for glasgow, with nothing planned, accepted suggestions of what to do in one week 13 November to 20 November
 I thought about staying in Glasgow for 2 days and then taking the bus to Edinburgh and on the last day I came back to Glasgow. I read that the trip is fast and cheap,  1.3O way and 9 pounds per couple. What do you think of this plan ?? And what tours or places should I do and visit in Glasgow and Edinburgh?
Thank you

    Hi @NunoGiao! I actually have just returned from an adventure in Portugal last week. We went to Lisbon, Sintra and Porto - what a wonderful country! 

    Will be very pleased to now welcome you to our shores - how exciting. Portugal and Scotland are quite different so I'm sure you'll enjoy the variation of scenery, climate, food and attractions!

    Glasgow is a great metropolis with lots to see and do. There is a lot of information here that might help you plan what you'd like to do while you're there. 

    Edinburgh has a completely different look and feel to Glasgow. Both are equally wonderful - just quite different to each other. The bus is very cheap and is an easy ride. There is a train too but the bus is cheaper :) There's some more information on Edinburgh here which might help you as well. 

    With a 7 day trip you would also have enough time to go on one of the 1 day Highland trips too! That way you can see a bit more of the country landscape and hopefully spot a few highland coos.

    Hope this helps!
