A friend of mine is travelling to Inverness to defend his dissertation in mid-January. He will fly out of either Indianapolis or Chicago OHare.
In exploring flight options, it looks like few airlines fly into Inverness. Flybe appears to be one of them.
Would it be better to fly into Edinburgh and take the train to Inverness? I see flights available on BA from ORD to EDI with a change at LHR.
Is weather a factor in Scotland in January? If so, would he better off flying all the way to INV or taking a train there from Edinburgh?
He has not traveled in the UK before, so a simple routing that has the least chance of potential problems is preferable.
