I'm in the very beginning stages of planning a trip to Scotland during the last 2 weeks of August 2017. I know it's way too early to reserve anything, but I was wondering if anyone had experience traveling during that time of the year without advance reservations. I will be traveling solo and would like to have some level of spontaneity in my plans. I will definitely make reservations for my first couple of nights in whatever city I end up flying into, as well as Edinburgh since it is festival time. Does anyone have any experience traveling sans reservations during that time of year? What are your thoughts on this? I will not have a car, so that will definitely determine the level of flexibility I have too. Thanks for any input on my plans!
