In my past experiences when travelling I've enjoyed picking one city as a home base for a week and exploring from there at my own leisurely pace. I'm in the early planning stages of a 2 week trip to Scotland and Ireland and would like to know the pro's and con's of staying in either city for a week to help me decide. I would like to stay in a nice hotel that's walking distance to attractions and good resteraunts. I plan on going in August 2009.
Any opinions or advice is much appreciated.
