Sorry to derail this hilarious thread, but I do have a question about Scotland (is that ok??!)

If I have 8 nights there, how should I split it up? I was thinking 4 in Edinburgh, 2 in Glasgow and 2 in Inverness.
I wish I had more time but this is likely my max. Is this a good split? I want the city life and charm but also some of the highlands. advice?
thanks!

Well first of, you've got to declare your allegiance to the s-con or the s-cone ;)

Kidding... what is it that you're interested in seeing/doing? Galleries? Architecture? Nature? Food? If it were me I'd say 3 nights in Glasgow, 2 in Edinburgh and 3 in the Highlands... but I'm a tad biased! Tell us what you're into and maybe we can advise things to see and do!

Oh and when are you planning on coming? That will make all the difference, depending on what's on.

Can I refuse to get involved with the s-con/s-cone debate? I'm like Switzerland here!

I am in the early stages of planning and have never been before, so any help is greatly appreciated.
I will likely be traveling in mid-late June. Hard to narrow down what I am interested in as it's just about everything; Museums, architecture, castles, history, music, not too rigorous hiking, both the Arthur's seat volcano variety and around the lochs, outdoor cafes for dining and drinking, people watching, lots of veg food; I am trying to find a good balance with city stuff but want to have quality time in the highlands to see the magnificant valleys and mountains. Day trips to smaller areas are also possible. Will probably get a car to go to the highlands but that hasn't been decided yet.

want to have full, vibrant schedule while allowing for down time to sip a beer and soak it all in.

I am so excited about going and can't wait to hear the "s-con" for myself.

thanks!

ETK, when I spoke of nonsense I was meaning pretty much every post in this thread bar the first page or so. Including most of the things I have written. And there's nothing wrong with nonsense! Perhaps an, errr, cultural disconnect or sommat? Plan: let's obnoxiously pepper every one of our posts with a dozen smilies so no one is ever given the wrong impression. That'll work fo sho! :)

(eta: smiley)

i've spent a significant amount of time around (mostly southern) English and a few Welsh, albeit not any Scots (aside from my partner's granny). plus, i'm from the east coast, where we're sort of known for being snarky and ripping on each other. so i'd chalk it up to being new to the group dynamic - it seems most of the people in this group have known each other for quite a while and possibly met in person. i don't have that point of reference, and i read hostility in some of the posts [insert blurb about text-only communication bereft of social cues]. i'll be more careful about inferring negativity.

and i am very fond of silliness and nonsense. i just assumed (incorrectly) that you meant the BS type of nonsense.

Being one of those who have known the rest a while they're all croissants I can assure you there's no hostility on this thread, well, apart from what you brought to it tbh. We constantly take the peas out of each other and interrobang?! is pretty much the last person on this forum who would be hostile.

I ,for one, refuse to believe that a man who would wear that hat would ever be intoxicated.

No, we must fight... to the death (or hobnobs), it's the PPK way. Seriously, Isa throws us all in a cage with a packet of hobnobs and it's last one standing.
