What is the cheapest way to get to A-dam from Scotland? I Was planning on going Ireland to Scotland to A-dam but I could switch Ireland and Scotland if it makes getting to Amsterdam cheaper. What do you guys think? Thanks!!

Easy Jet has flights from Belfast, Glasgow and Edinburgh to Amsterdam for around 40 GBP, plus or minus, one way. Glasgow seems to be more expensive than Belfast or Edinburgh. RyanAir doesn't go to Amsterdam, evidently; bmibaby only goes to Amsterdam from Nottingham.

That's probably going to be the easiest and fastest way unless you want to go to England. good luck!!

Mmm.. since the east coast of GB is nearest Holland, going down from Scotland to Harwich via bus or train and then catching the ferry might be the way to go...

Depending on the time of year, you may also be able to find a super-cheap flight - check out http://ebookers.com to see what cheapies are available from Ireland or Scotland on your intended dates.

Thanks again everyone! I don't know the exact dates but it will be early April (I know, I am thinking about this WAY in advance!). I will check the websites.
