My husband and I are taking a last minute planned trip (if we can pull it together) to Edinburgh, Scotland, York and London in mid May (2019). We are late 60's and love seeing the historical and cultural sights and mixing with the people. I am an above knee amputee and while I walk well with a prosthesis, I have obvious limitations (no major hiking and I avoid hills and steps when possible--yes I know Scotland is hilly). We are thinking of flying from the US to Edinburgh. We would stay 4 days there to acclimate and see the city. Then we are thinking of 2-3 days of side trips (by car or train) out of Edinburgh (making Edinburgh our base unless others think that is a bad idea) to see places of interest that are unique to Scotland There is so much to see we are stymied as to what to choose, so any suggestions will be welcomed. From there to York and then to London for the end of our trip.
May 15th - Leave US
May 16th-19th Arrive and visit Edinburgh
May 20-22 Side trips (still unknown)
May 23-24 Train to York (better to fly?) and visit there
May 25-29th Train or fly to London and time there
May 30th - Return US
Are we being foolish to think we can pull this together this fast? Hotel suggestions and best sights to see are welcome. We like nice hotels (not the MOST expensive but willing to pay more for the experience). We are reading as much as we can but not knowing the terrain makes it tricky. Thanks!
