Hi to all members of this page!

I am new here and just want to ask if somebody feels like giving me some tips about where to go in Scotland. I'm planning to travel there next summer and I have no idea where to go. Maybe somebody of you can recommend me a nice bed & breakfast house, a beautiful place and so on! Please excuse my bad english, but this isn't my mother's tongue so I'm not very good at it. By the way, does somebody of you want to keep in touch with me through email? Just write to me on this board or email me!

Hi, Cat! Your English is perfect! I think there's going to be a whole group of us females traveling to Scotland next year (huh, Carol?)! And now we're going to be coming from all corners! The guys are great around here and I'm sure they'll give you some good advice. Just wanted to say "hi" and welcome you here! - Diane P.S. Stu, be nice to her!

Hi Cat,
There is so much to see in Scotland! I hope you receive a lot of help from the "natives" here. I just returned from Scotland and found that Glasgow was very reasonable, quite friendly & a nice central "base" to many Scottish sites. (+ I think a lot of the Scotland.com crowd is close to the Glasgow area) I would highly recommend the Kirklee hotel which is a beautiful B&B with award winning gardens & is within walking distance to the University area. Breakfast is served to your room with lace covered tables overlooking the gardens. CK website www.4tourism.com/uk/hotels/kirklee.html From Glasgow you can book day trips to Castles, to Loch ness or ferry over to Ireland or with a car the Road to the Isles will take you to breathtaking Scottish Highland Islands. Have Fun!

Hi Eve,
Really, I don't think I found one place in Scotland I didn't like! I would say however, that Glasgow seems a little more reasonably priced than Edinburgh and it's pubs more eclectic. From Glasgow it's still a pretty easy train ride up to Inverness where you could stay for a few days also. I know the Dumfries & Galloway area south of Glasgow is supposed to have fairly mild winters compared to the Highlands if your going in December.
Have fun planning!

hi cat

you seem to be getting lots of help and advice. Come to the highlands. very scenic but cold and windy. maybe you'll see the Loch ness monster but only after we've been for a few beers!!!
