I am asking for your help as my husband and I travel out of the U.S. for the first time for our 10th anniversary this May and into June. We will have 12 nights and are flying into and out of London (arrive on a Sunday around lunch and depart on a Thursday afternoon). We are in desperate need of assistance creating an itinerary! We want to stay in a Marriott chain hotel for 5 of our nights (the same hotel during that time), as we have some points to use but are flexible as to where we would do that.
My husband really wants to rent a car and drive to Scotland, but I am wondering if we should take the train and then only rent a car upon arrival? Any advise about where we should go, where to stay etc is greatly appreciated!
