Traveling Ireland/Scotland/England Without a Car

Jump to last reply

Alright fellow travelers, I need some advice!
I will be visiting the United Kingdom this summer, focusing on southern Ireland, northern Scotland and the Scottish Isles, and the southern part of England.
I am planning to fly into Shannon as it's the cheapest ticket I've found so far and I am on a rather tight budget.
Here's the catch--I'm only 21 going on 22, so I won't be able to rent a car, which seems to be the biggest obstacle so far.
Highlights that I don't want to miss include the following:

Ireland: Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle, the Burren, Galway, Glendalough, Newgrange, Belfast if I can make it work, Isle of Man

Scotland: Loch Ness, Oban, Callanish, as many of the Isles as I possibly can, Lindisfarne, Glasgow, St. Andrews.

England: Avebury, Stonehenge, Tintangel, St. Michael's Mount, Arundel Castle. I have already done London and parts of northern England before so I'd like to focus on the bits I haven't seen before.


I'm not an overly touristy type, though I do want to see some of the popular spots. Mostly I'm looking to see as much as possible on the lowest possible budget. I want to be blown away by the natural beauty.
I will be arriving in Shannon on May 22 and I will be staying until the last day in June.

All advice is more than welcome!
