Bus tours in the highlands

by happyhormones

I'm planning to go to Scotland for about three or four days, and I was interested in those mini bus tours heading to the highlands (2/3 days tours). Are the routes the buses take winding roads? I get terrible motion sickness and winding roads always make me ill so this is something I think about when planning my travels.

You may well encounter winding roads in Scotland (and the UK generally), whether you are in the Highlands or not. We don't have many hairpin bends, but there are plenty of ordinary bends even on quite major roads.

As a fellow sufferer I suggest you take your panacea of choice (medication/wristbands/ginger/whatever) with you, and minister to yourself before your daytrips. Far, far better than feeling sick!

In the true highlands where a minibus might go, there are single lane, winding, up and down roads. As leics says, if you don't want to miss out, maybe best to find some way of dealing with the travel sickness.

Larger buses will tend to keept to larger roads, which also tend to be less winding.

Hiya,
Greetings from adelaide, australia.
There are many (and varied) bus tour companies that go into the highlands (some one day tours, other 2-4 days etc). I would recommend Rabbie's Tours who are a small group tour company based in scotland - they offer personalised tours to and around the highlands. It is best to check out their website.
I am doing an 8 day tour throughout the western isles of scotland.

Perhaps even try a personal drive company, you can sit in the front seat of their car so the sickness will be less intense as most roads in Scotland are winding (apart from motorways) Try Green Lyne Tours from West Linton (Scottish Border area)

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Gardens and Castle

Be there during the festival...

by Sjalen

Be there during the festival in August. The festival with all its crazy acts like 'Sing-a-long-a-Malcolm, as seen on TV' (Malcolm sang 'You are my Sunshine' in his very own way to anyone who would listen). There was also 'Inside Out Theatre' (see picture) performing their version of a James Bond movie. It was called 'The Man with the Golden Trumpet' and I was overjoyed when I later caught them in London's Covent Garden too! Apart from all the street performers and the festival, there is the official festival Fringe with theatre plays in every part of town. We opted for the 'Pocket Shakespeare Company' and their version of A Midsummer Night's Dream in Pilrig Park. You should have seen the man in the moon!

Edinburgh in Early May

by happyhormones

I wore 3 layers most of the time and felt comfortable. A tee, a woolen sweater over, and a thinner hoodie. I did not feel too hot or too cold at any time. The streets are cobbled so heels are not a good idea. It's never a good idea for travelling backpackers anyway. Sneakers or comfy shoes are best. Pockets on your clothing would be good to warm the hands :) Good lip balm because the cold can crack lips.

Dunadd Fort

by CandS

We drove out to Kilmartin on our way from Fort William...it was basically a waste of time because there was nothing really out there although our map had a lot of tourist sites marked... I wouldn't bother with it again... Still, this was a nice view that we saw on the way out there...
