My husband and I (in our early 60s, coming from Portland, Oregon) are making our first trip to Scotland this late July - Aug. It is a guided hiking adventure that starts in Inverness. I have a few different questions for all you helpful folks:
I thought it might be fun to fly into Amsterdam (never been) and spend a few days getting over jet lag there and then head to either INV or Edinburgh. Has anyone done anything like this? If going to Edinburgh first, is it pretty easy to get a train to INV?
It looks like EDI may have more sites and things to do than INV so should we spend a day or two there?
What is the best airline for all this? We are big fans of Condor but always have to go through Frankfurt. Delta is nonstop but expensive. Whatever airline, I am thinking it is cheaper to do a round-trip in and out of AMS and then arrange a hopper to and from Scotland in between those dates as opposed to the "multistep" option, which for some reason is more $$$.
Any other tips/suggestions? THANKS!
