Scotland & Ireland 2 women, 14 days on the ground

Jump to last reply

My friemd and I are planning a trip to Ireland and Scotland late august through early September. We are in the very early stages of planning and thus do not yet have places to go, local travel, or events lined up. We will be seeing an agent at AAA tomorrow, and may hire a travel agent friend to help us fill in the details of travel if we need the assistance. We are interested in learning places to go based on our interests and y'all's experience.

Our trip interests:
- local spots, less tourism
- beautiful scenery
- we don't care about alcohol or beer tours
- relaxed travel
- stars
- water
- an adventerous activity (whitewater rafting, spelunking, canyoning, bat caves, etc.?)
- Nature
- Places to go based on O'Brien and Lockhart lineage

Miscellaneous Interests:
- European thrift stores
- Open fields for public frolicking
- Delicious foods
- Maybe a nice, clean male strip club in Scotland

What are your thoughts based on these rough criteria? Lastly, please share any packing tips for late august through early september you may have. Thank you for your travel tips!
