We're planning a trip to UK in October or possibly August. Don't like crowds so October may be better but concerned with weather. Regardless first time there and not sure which area to base our trip. Would love to see quaint towns, beautiful country sides and castles. Not too interested in the big cities or typical tourist spots. Will be in UK 10 days...any suggestions. Btw... Would love to see Scotland too...oh and on a modest budget. Thanks!!!!!!
