I've been reading and researching for only a short time but I really think I need an insider to point me in the right direction.
My dad has always wanted to visit with/talk to locals- especially local fishermen. He has mentioned the Outer Hebrides- Or are there other islands that would be better suited for that? Orkney Islands? Can anyone point me to the right area/website/info to get started?
I know there are beautiful beaches, lots of birds and lots to do historically, which is why I'll probably go with him ;0) but I want to make sure he is happy (doesn't take much- some fish & chips and an evening with the locals and possibly some small boat rides to go out fishing)
Also, we are hoping to go in late March to get cheaper airfare, but if you tell me it is just a total waste of time (terrible weather, nothing open) I'll try to bump him to April.
Any advice for me? I surely appreciate it.
