Tour over Christmas

by sorcieus

I am going to spend the holidays in Scotland and wondering if there are tours going over Christmas. I am thinking a 2 or 3 days highlands tour.
Thank you

Re: Tour over Christmas

by leics

I doubt there will be any tours operating over Christmas itself (24th/25th/26th), and most tours do not operate in the winter anyway.

This firm offers tours all year round:

Might be worth contacting them.

If you google "tours Scotland" you will find lots of info. However, having just done this research for tours in the Spring for a non-VTer, the following companies at least have tours over Christmas/Hogmanay and others besides:

www.wild-in-scotland.com
www.macbackpackers.com
www.rabbies.com

Remember that these days will be short, as it gets dark early.

Super! Thanks a bunch!

Re: Tour over Christmas

Very good question! I didn`t even think about this sort of ttour being available, although quite often travelling at that time of year can be difficult. My heart will be in Dundee on the 26th but that`s an addiction!

Re: Tour over Christmas

by sorcieus

I decided to do the wild-in-scotland 6 days tour. It seems awesome. Now I have to shop for a good-comfortable-waterproof walking/hiking shoes. Have anybody took a tour with them before?

Wrap up well and be careful with the drinking. I think that taking Milk Thistle can help your liver to recover! :-)
You deserve decent weather, our winters have been milder recently but that could mean wetter and windier. If you are out in nasty weather you may wish to mutter the words,` ......god forsaken place`
I hope you enjoy it!

Re: Tour over Christmas

by graememooney

That's great that you managed to book a tour. I was going to suggest a self-tour, so this is for any others searching for this information. If one was to book 24 hours in advance, contact Citylink busses and schedule yourself to get to Aberdeen (from almost anywhere) .... I went from Glasgow - Dundee - Aberdeen. I stayed at a B&B in Aberdeen and caught the city bus out to Braemar. There's a great place to stay called the Braemar Lodge Hotel and I know they are open up until at least New Year's day. There are all levels of walks in the highlands, using this as your base. The reverse bus trip would need to be done, as the city bus line ends at Braemar. If anyone does decide to do this, be sure to sit upstairs in the double-decker bus - a ride up there through the windy roads is better than going on a roller coaster. I remember the round-trip transport cost was no more than 30 pounds (28 comes to mind) and the Lodge was 25 pp per night with breakfast.

Travel Tips for Glasgow

IF YOU CAN BRING SOME EXTRA...

by RABBYD

IF YOU CAN BRING SOME EXTRA CASH AS GLASGOW IS A VERY GOOD SHOPPING CITY (ONLY LONDON IS BETTER IN THE UK)FROM THE TOP
NAMES IN FASHION TO THE THE VERY STRANGE PADDYS MARKET THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY. TRY THE BARRAS MARKET ON A
SATURDAY OR SUNDAY OR THE BIG PUBLIC CAR BOOT SALE IN THE EAST ON A SUNDAY.
THE PUB AND CLUBS ARE TOP NOTCH BUT DONT JUST STICK TO THE CITY CENTRE TRY PARTICK OR THE WEST END PUBS(BYRES RD) ALSO THE SOUTH SIDE(SHAWLANDS). THE CLUB SCENE HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY THE TUNNEL/THE ARCHES/ARCHAOS OR DESTINY ALWAYS ARE GOOD NIGHTS OUT BUT BE WARNED DRINK IS EXPENSIVE IN THE CLUBS.
THE CHEAPEST PINT OR SHORT I KNOW ABOUT IN GLASGOW IS THE COUNTING HOUSE AT GEORGE SQUARE WHICH IS ALSO A GREAT MEETING PLACE TO START YOUR NIGHT. THE PEOPLE ARE WITHOUT DOUBT THE FRENDLIST PEOPLE ON THE PLANET THEY WILL HELP ANYBODY AT ANYTIME.
THEY LOVE TO TALK TO PEOPLE WHO ARE GUESTS IN THE CITY AND YOU WILL FIND THE HONEST IN THEIR OPINIONS OF ANYWHERE YOU WANT TO GO OR HAVE HEARD OF.

If you are visiting Glasgow to...

by Krystynn

If you are visiting Glasgow to attend a conference (re: work) or to attend an event at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Center, then I can't think of a better recommendation than to ask you to check out their official website at:

www.secc.co.uk

That was what I was there for actually... :-)

Have fun!

Glengoyne distillery

by Lost_In_Transit

If you are a whisky lover, a visit to the Glengoyne distillery is highly recommended. A standard guided tour is about 5£ and includes a sip. Try to get John as your guide. Very professional and entertaining fellow.

You get there by taking the no. 10 bus from stance 34 at Buchanan bus station. Trip time is about 45 minutes and the bus stops right outside the distillery gates.

After the tour of the distillery there is a very nice countryside pub where you can relax and have lunch. When you come out the main gate from the distillery, turn right and walk up the small hill. You will see the pub on the left side of the road about 400 meters away. Just remember that you have to walk back to the distillery to catch the bus back to Glasgow again.

Linlithgow Palace

by margaretvn

This is a really beautiful ruin of a royal palace which is set in its own park on the shore of Linlithgow loch and it is one of the countries most visited ruins. Most of the ruins are buildings commissioned by James V although some sections date from the 14th century. The fountain in the courtyard is being restored and it was a wedding present from James V to his wife, Mary of Guise, in 1538. The Church of St Michael is next to the palace and it is Scotland's largest pre-Reformation church.
King James V (1512) and Mary Queen of Scots (1542)were both born here. It was a much favoured residence of the Stewart Kings and Queens from the time of James I (1406-37) onwards. Building work commissioned by James I, III, IV, V and VI can be seen.
take a walk around the grounds - it is lovely and quiet and there are some picnic benches if you have a lunch with you. We like to get fresh bread, cheese and fruit and sit outside looking at the views if possible.

Open all year round
In Linlithgow where it is well signposted. Leave the M9 at junction 3 if you are travelling north or junction 4 if you are travelling south.

Jazzy night out in Glasgow

by fluffybunny

There is a lot to offer and no shortage of bars and clubs.

For young students 17-24 the best place to head is Sauchiehall Street. All the bars run along this street and there are two nightclubs, The Garage and Trash.

For more refined students that want to soak up a little bit of the typical Scottish culture it's better to head to Ashton lane in the West End. If you take the underground to Hillhead you simply come out of the underground and take the first left turning into the lane. There are also a few bars on Byres Road.

The Merchant city is my favourite place to go for a night out and there is no shortage of bars either. Arta is a trendy bar with an avergae age of 30+ you can also eat here. For a more traditional Scottish pub head to Blackfriars or Babbity Bowster's on Black Friars Street.

For a bit of luxury head for the Corinthian on Ingram Street: it's beautiful inside and not much more expensive than any other bar. Don't forget to look at the ceilings: it used to be an old bank. On a Friday Satuirday night people tend to get dickied up but in a little bit of a tacky way but just wear what makes you feel comfortable
