Where to stay for 5 months
My husband and I are planning to stay in Scotland for 6 months starting in July 2020. We already have one month planned in the city of Edinburgh at Christmas. We are having a hard time deciding where to make a "home base." We are retired, somewhat active, with varied interests (hubby golfs). Any recommendations where we could immerse ourselves in the Scottish way of life and still a good location for travel and amenities not to far away, would be appreciated. Thanks
