Trip Report MaiTaiTom Gets The Royal Treatment…Two Weeks Exploring London and Scotland

Jump to last reply

We’re off and running on the UK trip report. Tracy and I, along with friends Kim and Mary, took advantage of a ridiculous springtime airfare to London and decided to spend 15 days exploring London (four nights), Edinburgh (four nights) and the Scottish countryside (seven nights). It was our first trip to Scotland, and it certainly will not be the last. As usual we traveled at a fairly frenetic pace, but we definitely made some time to stop and smell the haggis.

Our first stop was London, and today is Chapter One featuring our first day there. Although we only had half a day after we arrived, we had enough time for a pub lunch, a quick stop to check in on the Queen, a visit to Diana’s ancestral home, evening cocktails at our cool hotel and dinner at a fabulous London Indian restaurant. Some like it hot, baby!

Thanks to everyone who helped on the Scotland plans, with special thanks to Janisj and Gardyloo for helping map out a navigable route. You'll be happy to know we didn't kill anyone, human or animal. In fact, we had very, very little traffic anywhere we traveled.

As always, my report makes no sense unless you follow along with photos (some might say it doesn't make sense with the photos, but that's another story. Plus this site is increasingly hard for me to navigate (can't preview either), so hopefully you don't mind looking at the report with the photos on my website. The Scottish countryside makes good photo taking pretty darned easy, as you will see early in the report. Special thanks to Kim and Tracy who took many of them.

Here is the link to Day One. Thanks for following along.
