As members of this forum helped me with good choices of hotels in London last year, I'm again asking for help.
This year me and my girlfriend decided that we'll spend our hollidays in Scotland and not on some hot beach over the sea.
We'll have 14 days to spend and are planning to come to Scotland - Glassgow at 5.8.2009, and leave arround 19.8.2009. Since we'll travel with Ryanair we have the dillema to stay entire 14 days in Scotland or go for 2 days in Dublin, since we have direct flight to Venice from there. In my oppinion it will not be fair to give Dublin just 2 days or to take 2 days away from Scotland. What do you say?
What do you recomend to see in Scotland? We have a plan to go north as far as we can, and then decend to Glassgow, from where we would fligh back home. As I found out there is a festival in Edingburgh, which we must see if we go in August, but there must be lots more beautiaful places we don't know of. Please advise what to see, and where to go and of course what not to miss.
And furthermore I'm asking myself if its best to book hotels in advance or just go and sleep in hotels we find near our travel route? Since we'll travel a lot I can't say for sure when we'll be in certain place, so it's hard to book a hotel in advance. What do you recomend? Is it possiblle to get rooms without booking in advance for reasonablle money? Of course in major cities we would book hotels, since there rooms are hard to find.
Thanks for your ansvers in advance.
