Tour Companies

by ocicat

Looking at tour companies working out of Edinburgh for a 5 to 7 day trip into the highlands and Skye areas. I've found interesting sounding 5 day trips with Rabbie's, Highland Experience and Highland Explorer. Has anyone had any experiences with these?

Is there another tour company to be recommended?

I'd take the train.. Spectacular :-)

Don't know about your budget or so on but you might have a look at haggistours.com

Ahh... Haggis and Burn's Supper! Memories... :-)

Budget is decent enough... not Abercombie and Kent (oh don't I wish!)... but it will keep us comfortable. :-)

Checked out Haggis. Seems to be aimed at a young age set. We're sitting at the 50 yr mark ourselves.

I never used a tour company in Scotland, but then I was living there! I always took the train (I love trains!) and stayed in a B&B. I redid the train to Oban trip when I last went back to Scotland - woke up too late to go all the way to Mallaig (is that how it's called?) for a day trip..

Re: Tour Companies

We thought about the train option... but we like to stop too much! LOL Now we are looking at a private tour and it's grown from 7-ish days to 12-14. Wow! And that is just for north of the Glasgow-Edinburgh line.

We are going to take a short train ride on the Jacobite line.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle...

by CandS

We visited the Edinburgh Castle because of the bad weather (we thought we would be indoors most of the time) but ended up even having to leave there since the wind was trying to blow us off from the castle grounds...

The audio guide was fantastic though...definitely worth paying for...

Edinburgh Tip

by cheekymarieh

My fondest memories of Edinburgh involve visiting a friend who was at Uni there.

One trip involved taking her to hospital because she had burnt her leg on a hot water bottle. She had been out celebrating the resignation of Margaret Thatcher.

Whenever I went to visit something always seemed to happen. There was never a dull moment!

What is Haggis???

by Pixiekatten

The best description I ever heard is the one where a Haggis is a furry sheep-like animal, with 2 shorter legs on one side so they can run around the scottish hills... and it tastes like chicken... unfortunately, that one isn't true.

The scottish national dish.
Haggis is .. well .. if you really want to know, keep reading. If not, stop reading and order it when you get to Scotland anyway. It does taste good. Dont go easy on the black pepper though!
(Where to get a good haggis, I'd say Maison Bleue on Victoria Street. Thats a sure thing!)

Traditional Haggis

1 sheep's pluck (stomach bag)

2 lb.. dry oatmeal

1 lb. suet

1 lb. lamb's liver

2 1/2 cups stock

1 large chopped onion

1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, Jamaica pepper and salt

Boil liver and parboil the onion, then mince them together. Lightly brown the oatmeal. Mix all ingredients together. Fill the sheep's pluck with the mixture pressing it down to remove all the air, and sew up securely. Prick the haggis in several places so that it does not burst. Place haggis in boiling water and boil slowly for 4-5 hours. Serves approximately 12.

ENJOY!

Greyfriars' Bobby

Can I have a dog like this? Popular legend has it that a terrier stayed by his master's grave for 14 years after he died in the 19th century.
The local dog was so popular they built a statue for him

A Typical Residential Street - across The Meadows

by scotlandscotour

Here is a view most tourists won't see - unless they take a tour on foot.

These houses are split into many many apartments ("flats" in UK), and are quite popular. This particular area was once popular with students, but as property prices have rocketed in recent years (devolution of some power from London to Edinburgh and the Scottish Executive coming to Edinburgh), I don't know how many of these are now rented out.

This picture also illustrates the car parking nightmare - these are all permit-only spaces, so yo uhave no chance. As this was taken at 10am, I don't know where everyone parks at night.

See also the road surface.

To find streets like this cross the Meadows from the city centre, or walk / bus out to Bruntsfield / Morningside areas.
