If you don’t have a car or can’t drive, оne-day organised trips are the best way to explore some of the beautiful places in Scotland. There are a couple of companies which offer trips every day with a starting point from Glasgow or Edinburgh. The tour I booked with some friends was with Rabbie’s, from Glasgow to Oban, Glen Coe and lakes and castles of the Highlands.
It was the middle of May 2016 and the weather was awesome, sunny and just a bit windy, which for Scotland is the best weather you can get. The starting point of the tour was next to George Square. The driver of the minibus was our guide as well and told us many stories about the places visitеd. The whole trip was very entertaining, we listened to Scottish music, learnt new things about Scotland and saw scenic places.
When you can’t get to Rome, you visit the next best thing, which in the UK is Bath. The seven-hour-drive to this historical place is worth it, believe me, if you are in love with Jane Austen and Roman history.
After a day of research, I came to the conclusion that the best and cheapest way to reach this town from Glasgow is by car. Definitely, one of the smartest decisions in my life, as I had only the weekend to visit and I wanted to spend most of my time in this lovely town. I was visiting a friend; thus, I knew I will be spared the minutes looking at a guide and wondering which way to go next. And I wasn’t wrong, I got the best of Bath in just two days.
If you think that a weekend is not enough, here are the things you can see and do.
