Would appreciate any suggestions. I need to decide by next week which month to travel to Scotland. I can choose between the week of September 15th or October 20th. I would prefer October, but need to know if attractions will be open (and what kinds)? I like to do a variety of things, so I am not limited to a specific activity. Do hotels close before the end of October? Is there a part of the country that remains open till the end of October more than other areas (North, South, East, West)? I will be driving, so it won't be a problem to navigate. Is there any special information as far as driving is concerned? I ask this, because when I drove through Italy a few years ago, I was not aware of certain zones that you couldn't drive in, and received tickets a year later that totalled more than I paid for the rental! Are there any "must sees" that you can recommend? I am open to all suggestions. I want to experience as many things as I can. I am not one of those people that go to the standard attractions that people usual go to. I love different things. Thank you for your help.
