Free Day in Scotland???

Free Day in Scotland???

Hi everyone,

I was just looking for some suggesting for a free day in scotland.

A little backround first..we will be in Edinburgh Sun. Mon - Wed we are doing a tour of the Highlands (haggis tour probably). Thursday we will have another day in Edinburgh. Sat we are in Glasgow, we fly out of glasgow on Sunday.

So, we have Friday day and night as a free day. I was just wondering what a good place to go would be, we will have to leave from Edinburgh and end up in Glasgow evenually. So maybe something by these areas.

Is there little towns that are a must see, or cool places where you can rent bikes and see the scenery that way.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated:)

Options between Edinburgh and Glasgow:

Stirling - a historic town with its own castle (if you haven't seen enough of castles in Edinburgh) there is more info on visitscottishheartlands.com/areas/…index.cfm

there is info on bike hire and routes on www.instirling.com/family/bike.htm - the surrounding countryside has some great options - the Trossachs are near at hand and beautiful.

If it was me I would head to Glasgow and spend time in the museums there, many of them are free as they are owned by the City Council - http://www.glasgowmuseums.com/ - My personal favourites are The Transport Museum, The Burrell Collection & The Peoples Palace

Other places to see that you have to pay for are:

The House for an Art Lover (Built to a Charles Rennie Mackintosh Design & has a fab cafe)

The Tenement House - Shows how families lived in the tenements, totally untouched

The Lighthouse
