I have the opportunity to take a short vacation on my way back to the US from Norway. I'd really like to spend a few days in Scotland but have no idea where to start with only 5 days. First question would be - Glasgow or Edinburgh as my start/stop point? My idea of adventure is walking around city centres, checking out architecture and shops and people. I'd like to get outside of the major city because I have found the locals are a lot more fun and friendly outside of the tourist areas in most places. I love small, interesting towns and people. I had heard there was some kind of tour where you walk through villages and they take your bags from each overnight place for you - and you just walk through until you get to your rest place for that night - but I can't find reference to a tour like that anywhere.
Any help or ideas is greatly appreciated.
