'm going to Scotland in mid- late September for a week with about 3-4 days in Edinburgh and 2-3 in Glasgow and all travel within Scotland will be by train, bus etc as I'm not renting a car. Flying in and out of EDI.
I would like to have one day out of the cities- seeing smaller town or sites- there is Oban, what else is there? Woollen mills/ sheep, farming history? I'm not interested in battle sites like Culloden.
The Leith and Water of Dean areas sounds interesting to me- can you walk there from the city centre or is it better to take bus?
Also, my flight arrives very early Sunday morning around 7 am and leaving early Sunday morning a week later. Given my flight departure time thinking I will be better off to split up my days in Edinburgh. I know I will be very jetlagged when I arrive - I need to have a central hotel where I can leave my luggage and I guess Sunday morning there would be few or no trains from Glasgow to EDi airport?
