I've seen other posts and train vs. airplane but I'm interested in seeing the country so I'd rather train. We'll be leaving London and would love to see as much as possible between there and Edinburgh. Could you rent a car and then stop along the way? Or should I just train up stopping or would a 10 yr. old be bored with just countryside?
I HAVE to see a Campbell castle (maiden name) during the trip too.
So, any place to stop along the way that would be worth it? Or just get a sleeper and get up to the bigger cities?
