Trip Report Solo Scotland May 2014

Jump to last reply

I am a semi-occasional lurker here and will soon be requesting assistance with honeymoon planning. I was in Scotland for 14 days last May, and we are heading there for our honeymoon this coming May. I thought that before I asked for assistance, I'd post a report about what I did on my solo trip.

A bit about myself before I begin. I earned a diploma in a health care field in 1999 and worked for 10 years before deciding to go back to school for information technology. Entering my final year last September (2013), I decided to treat myself to a vacation before re-entering the working world. I had lofty aspirations of this big trip through France, Belgium, Holland, and Scotland, but decided that doing something that big in the three weeks or so that I had would be too much. Since my ancestry is Scottish (Kerr), I decided to focus on Scotland.

I read lots of forums and was going to post asking for suggestions, but instead I just decided to choose 4 places to visit and had a travel agent help with the details. The agent booked the flights, hotels (with one exception), and a Rabbies day-tour.

Pictures from my trip are up on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

Armed with my notebook and photos, I shall try to give a detailed - but not too detailed - report.
