My wife and I are coming to Scotland in August. We're going to spend two nights in Edinburgh, then rent a car and go to St. Andrews for a night. Next we are thinking of driving toward the Loch Lomond area and staying there for one night so we can get to the Cowal gathering on Friday the 24th.
First, are the Cowal games something you would recommend?
After the games we were going to take the ferry to Gourock so we can stay over in Glasgow before we fly back to London. Do we need to be prepared for a long wait to take the car ferry after the games?
Looking at the ticket website for the games they list an entrance ticket and then an option for a seated ticket. Is it worth it to get the ticket for seats? We would like to experience a little of everything and I'm not really sure what we would be able to see from the seats.
Anything else I should know?
Thanks for the help!
