Family trip to Scotland August 2013

Jump to last reply

My wife and I, with our 4 kids (ages 11, 13, 15 and 18) are considering a trip to Scotland and England this summer, in the early to mid August timeframe. We are still in the early stages of planning, and I still need to confirm a few things for my work schedule in order for this to work out. Unfortunately, this will be the only time for us to travel due to work and school considerations. We're looking at 12-14 days, not counting travel days, evenly split between Scotland and London. We have a pretty good idea for London, but I'm looking for suggestions for Scotland. My company has an office outside Glasgow, and I've been there once before on business, but this will be the first time outside the US for my wife and three of our kids.
I'd like to keep things pretty flexible. If possible, I'd like to take in a Rangers game in Glasgow, but for the rest of our time in Scotland, I'd like to be based in or near Edinburgh. I know August is festival season, so we'd want to take in some of the more family friendly aspects of that, and I'd like to also see the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo one night. Beyond that, I wouldn't mind renting a car for a day or two up north.
So, based on that, any ideas on what we might do? also, any thoughts on transportation or accommodations would also be most welcome. I'd like to keep our nightly rate for accommodations under £300/night for the 6 of us. While in the Edinburgh/Glasgow area, I would definitely prefer public transport over having a rental car, though I would prefer our a rental car if we head north (unless there's a good alternative).

Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

thanks!
