First Trip to Scotland

Jump to last reply

Working on my bucket list of places to see before..... I've done pretty extensive research (relatively easy thanks to the excellent historic record keeping in the UK) of my Scottish ancestors. My grandfather was born/raised in Glasgow and grandmother was born/raised in Edinburgh. I've obtained copies of city maps from the late 1800's and have been able to pin point their homes....so of course I have to see for myself and do more research.

I want to spend some time in Glas and Edin but we are also interested in experiencing and visiting more than just the "big cities". My husband (who is not the adventurous type and probably just going along with my "dream") and I are torn between taking a tour (Rick Steves) or going it on our own.

There are other destinations on my bucket list, so this may be my only trip to "the motherland." Given this info, what recommendations do the seasoned travelers have for me?
