I need your advice! We are going to Scotland in 2024 and don't know whether to travel in mid-l\ate June or end of Aug-Sept.
We will be doing a trip to Blairgowrie and the east coast since our ancestry is from this area. We are also going to do a tour of the west coast to Skye and back. Our dilemma is whether to plan a late Aug trip to take in the Tatoo or not. I know that hotels etc are higher in price at this time of year. We are not interested in the Fringe since we have an excellent Fringe at home. We also heard that you won't really get a authentic Scottish experience in Aug due to the business of the festivals that are taking place.
So..is it worth planning a trip around the Tatoo?
Should we take in some local Scottish games instead?
Any advise is appreciated.
