My husband and I are planning our first visit to Scotland in August 2012, plan to spend 2-3 weeks. We are debating whether we should book a coach tour or rent a car and follow our own itinerary in conjunction with day tours of specific areas. We want to spend a few days in Edinburgh for the Military Tattoo, see as much of the country as possible on a relaxed schedule and do some exploring of my family roots in the Tarbet area. We would appreciate any suggestions, ideas or comments of the best way to go and the
"must see" areas, from those who have visited and/or live in Scotland. Your assistance is appeciated.
