Hey guys

Im planning on taking off during our 3 month uni holidays and heading over to Europe.
I land in London on the 7th December and have a few things to do.
So from the 12th - 20th i was thinking on going up to Scotland (21st is my birthday and i promised my mate I'll meet him in Amsterdam..where else? ;) )
I was wondering if anyone could help me out with where to go in Scotland
Im planning on training to Edinburgh but from there im not sure. i was thinking a bit more of an adventure then just staying in the city... so smaller towns, out in the country etc
any help would be appreciated

Try typing top 10 things to do in Scotland into google and it'll give you a list of the places recommended. The most obvious are seeing Glasgow and Edinburgh and remember to chase nessie and try out St Andrews.

Have fun

Hey !
I'll advice you to go to the Highland which are really amazing, especially if you get some snow (but colddddd) !! And maybe some of the islans as well, (the easiest one to go would maybe be Skye as there is a bridge but ferries go quite often as well). And if you want to see some lochs, go the Lommond !! It's a really nice one !!
"10 things to see in Scotland" sites are going to give you quite good ideas I guess of what you can do here but the most difficul part is going to be to pick only some of them :) !!

I hope you'll have fun in Scotland ! Such a great country !!

What sort of budget are you on? It can be very expensive, but with a bit of carefully planned homework - very cheap too.

Thanks for the advice so far
top 10 things to do in scotland helped me get some ideas
and the highlands is definite yes!
Does anyone know a company that does hikes into the highlands even during winter?

Im hoping to stay on a 2 day budget of about $50-60aud so about 30-35 pounds. At the moment it seems doable, but im not too worried about going over budget money's not the issue as im heading to Northern Africa soon after
