Hello - I just came across your blog while searching for information on planning a trip to Scotland. We would like to be there at the end of July - early August, yes, the worst time from a bookings point of view!! and ideally would like to do southern Scotland as we will be flying into London and then driving and would like to minimize the drive.
There will be 6 adults and a baby and we were hoping to spend about 8-9 days in Scotland - perhaps some days in a self-catering cottage with a good location for day trips and then perhaps a few days in a hotel in a different location.
Do you have any suggestions for us?
Hope to hear from you soon - I know we have left this planning too late already!
Most of our properties are booked for that period. We can offer availability at Weavers Hall, a barn style cottage conversion between Perth and St Andrews which is very central for touring. See:
Hope this is of help,
