I am going with my daught. in Sept. to drop her at uni in Scotland for her first year. We are coming into Glasgow, and spending 3 nights there at a small hotel. (Also need to visit Ikea, etc.) We visited Edinb. a couple of years ago (loved The Fringe!). We need to end up in St. Andrews. We want to go everywhere we've read about, but sadly have only 5 additional days. I plan on renting a car. Not strong preferences, but would like to visit some islands, see a bit of ancient ruins, some small towns, and perhaps another city (wish we could get o Orkney but seems too far.) Quests we have are:
1) Where best to spend our time?
2)Should we get reservations in advance, or can we wing it?
Any suggestions appreciated!
