I'm planning to visit Scotland in summer for 12 days. Whats the best way to travel around within the country? To rent a car, travel by bus, train, etc.?

    Oh bonnie Scotland. :-)

    If you have the budget, then I would definitely hire a car. Whist the train and bus service are pretty good, you have a limited time and quite a large area to cover, so a car will make it more flexible for you.

    In the more remote areas, such as in the Highlands, there may only be one local bus a day, so you could spend a lot of time trying to get around.

    If you wanted to join an organised tour, I have heard good things about:

    If you plan to stay in the south of Scotland you can youse the bus or the train. When you plan your holiday´s in the Highlands it´s mutch better you hire a care.

    Because there not so many conections between the villages. And you spend a lot of time with waiting.

    I stey 1 month in Scotland,and I have a care. This was the best decision for me. over 6 years ago
