We plan on using Edinburgh as our base for 7 days exploring Scotland basically on our own using day tours and public transportation. Our visit will be the first week of September, 2020. We will be flying out of Glasgow to the states on Iceland Air. I have a few questions needing input:
- should we break up the time and spend a couple days in Glasgow (we would at lest spend one night in Glasgow prior to our flight,)
- Is it doable to take a day trip from Edinburgh to St. Andrews as we want to take a tour of The Old Course
- tour operator recommendations - have noted some in other posts .
Our interests primarily lean towards seeing the country side, wondering around quaint towns, etc., less so in Castles and Museums. We frequently use the Hop on Hop off tours to get a lay of the land on the first day of a visit to a new city and then explore on our own
Appreciate any input, thanks
