1st Trip to Scotland

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. This is my 1st post. I am wanting to travel to Scotland; especially Aberdeenshire, as that's where my heritage is from. I have felt it "pulling" me the last year or so. I will have a month of my choosing off of work (though I don't think I can afford to spend more than 3 weeks travelling), travelling solo and have never been out of the US by myself.

I'm thinking I don't want to do one of the large group tours because I don't want to be rushed about and from my research, none of them go close to my "family castle", Skene House, which I'm told is still standing in Aberdeenshire and that is something I would really want to see. I believe it is privately owned so I don't even know if I CAN see it!

I'm just not quite sure where to even start with this trip. Since I'll be a solo traveler, I thought staying at a B&B would be a great way to take my time and see what's around Aberdeenshire and a few other towns. I don't want to get a car so my travelling is limited to foot or taxi. I really just want to immerse myself in Scotland. I would love to see other castles as well and I'm not a golfer at all! Any guidance would be helpful. Thank you all!
