Timing and car/ train transportation
We are arriving in Scotland,Glasgow, 1st trip,l. I plan to transfer from airport to Glasgow center and stay 2 nights, then train over to Edinburgh for 3 nights . Afterwards use similar transport as I did from Glasgow airport to center, to Edinburgh airport to rent a car and then tour for remainder of our days, approx 8. 3 questions. What recommendations for transport to and from airports? Is there a pass to buy to use public transportation while in Glasgow and Edinburgh and if yes, can it be used to travel from Glasgow to Edinburgh? Final question, I plan to stay somewhere about 1 hour or less away from Glasgow, returning from area of Isle of Skye side of Scotland, so we can drop off car at airport before we depart around 2 pm. Can anyone help with recommendations re transport or suggestions if my ideas are not good. Thanks for any help
