Damn...you got it planned out! Well, one suggestion. Just in case it takes a LOT less time to do the city sights that you have mapped out, and you get them done in 2 rather than 3 days, have a backup plan.

Pick a place out in the countryside to visit....Stirling Castle? Loch Lomond? Anyway, find out about buses there and back and have it in your "back pocket" in case you end up with an extra day or half day.

Showtimestafford is from Edinburgh, so might have some suggestions, too. Send him a PM...although I think he's off traveling now...

Um Hey,
Yes yes, I would have to agree with WWM about Stirling castle. Actually if you do go, give me a PM and ill meet you there. Some friends camped on the grounds recently and not having done that is making me flinch. So anyways a pint on me when you get here...

Glaswegion and yours,

R.R.
