Scotland and northern England

Jump to last reply

We’re making summer plans for northern England and Scotland. Our trip to this region will take place either before or after a week-long stay in London with family. Since the London week’s timeline has not been set yet, we thought we’d try to make more definitive plans for the other part of the trip. Our plane tickets haven’t been purchased yet, so our itinerary can easily be reversed.

We’re thinking a week or so in Scotland, then 3 nights in York. We can add a couple of days to it if needed.

A possible itinerary:
Day 1. Fly into Glasgow or Edinburgh. Spend the rest of the day and night in Glasgow or Edinburgh.

Days 2-3-4. Take a 3 day group tour with either Timberbush Tours (departs from Glasgow or Edinburgh) or The Wee Red Bus Tours (departs from Edinburgh) to see some of the Scotland’s highlands and the Isle of Skye. We’re thinking about arriving in Glasgow since Timberbush Tours picks up Glasgow passengers after picking up Edinburgh ones. Both companies end their tours in Edinburgh. Both companies seem to have very favorable ratings, plus we’d prefer to take a tour instead of driving around on our own. Anyone have opinions on these companies? We’ve never been to Glasgow, so if we start there we’d like to take a half day city tour or take a self-guided walking tour.

Days 5-6-7. Edinburgh. Spend a day in the city and visit the castle. We’ve seen a fair amount of Edinburgh on a previous visit. The second day we’d like to take a day trip to Rosslyn Chapel. Can we get there using public transportation or should we book a day tour? On the third day visit Stirling Castle. Again, can we get there using public transportation or should we book a day tour?

Days 8-9-10. Train to York. Two days to explore York and York minster, a day on the moors (on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway?)

Day 11. Train to London, stay 1 week. This will be a different thread.
Day 18. Fly back to US.

Does anyone have any recommendations for lodgings in Edinburgh or York? We’d like to stay in moderately priced lodgings, $150-$200.USD, B&B or hotel, near the train station if possible. We realize London will be more expensive, so trying to economize here.

We’d appreciate any comments and suggestions.
Thanks!
