1) I am going to be in London for five weeks in Aug on a study abroad. Weekends are our own time and am contemplating taking a train up to Edinburgh to see the festival. Would probably try and take an early early train and come back on a very late train. Would it be worth it to go for only one day? Would staying one night in a hostel and returning later the next day be a better option?
2) After the study abraad I'm traveling in Scotland. My friend and I are planning on renting a car and driving from Edinburgh to Inverness. As it happens, the day we're relocating is the first Sat in Sep which is the Braemar Gathering. Would it be worth going a little out of the way to go to it? Because we'll have to get to Inverness that day would it be worth it if we can only stay a couple hours?
