Winter holiday in scotland
My family and I will be spending our winter holiday in Scotland. This is my family's first trip to Scotland and is excited to see and do as much as possible. We have booked a 7-day stay at a self-catering apartment at Tweedbank, Scottish Borders. Would appreciate some tips & advice. If possible we may not want to drive. 1) Where do you recommend that we visit? (There will be 2adults + 1 tween + 1 9-year old. We like sight seeing and activities). 2) my Son learnt about Loch Lomand in his English class and asked me to bring him there. How do I get there from Tweedbank? 3) After Scotland, Travelling down to England, which route should I take? by train/bus? I plan to have 1 or 2 stops before finally arriving at London.
