London to Scotland--Need help planning!

Jump to last reply

In May we're planning to spend maybe 3/4 days in London--to visit our son who is studying there--and then head to Scotland for 7-10 days.

My son and I have never been there. (My husband was in Edinburgh 30 years ago so don't know if that counts.)

With so many choices, I'm feeling overwhelmed. I'd love to hear about how best to get there, where to go once there, and what to see.

We've driven from London to Cornwall several times over the years to visit relatives but that's our only UK experience outside London. We loved the freedom that came with driving ourselves.
We like to eat well, prefer small boutique hotels and would like to combine city and country experiences. If there's good theater to be had and modern art to see, we'd like that too.

I'd appreciate your suggestions.
