Where to Travel

by Raul Uranga
(seattle, Washington)

Hello we will be with a tour group traveling throughout Ireland for 3 weeks. Our final destination will be Dublin. We would like to take advantage of the closeness of Scotland. St Andrews is a must. We are not interested in big cities but small towns and villages. Castles and museums are preferred. We will be renting a car as you suggest. A week of travel would be great. Any help would be appreciated. Please help us in pointing us in the right direction

Thank you
by: Raul Uranga

Thank you so much I never dreamed that you be so efficient you are great. I am so lucky to have found your web site. We now have a starting point. We can plan and price out our trip. We have started to search for the points of interest. We will explore the kingdom of fife as much as possible even if it means extending our trip.
With your permission we will keep in touch
Raul Uranga, Thanks you

Your trip to Scotland
by: May

Hi Raul
Well the first issue for you to consider is how you're going to get to Scotland from Ireland. There is not ferry from Dublin to Scotland (only from northern Ireland). But you could get a reasonably priced flight.
Ryanair fly to Glasgow Prestwick; Aberdeen; Edinburgh;
Aer Lingus fly to Glasgow; Edinburgh

If you only have a week over here and want to visit St Andrews - then I suggest a flight to Edinburgh and then hire a car from the airport. Edinburgh Airport is about 1 - 1.5 hours drive from St Andrews. Of course I am a little biased but there is plenty to do in the Kingdom of Fife for the week. Have a look at the pages on Things to do in Fife where you'll find other pages on castles and other historic sites, museums and art galleries and many other things. Also look at the Places to See to discover some of the delightful towns and villages to visit. You'll find castles, palaces, museums, beautiful countryside and coastline, glorious fishing villages and you could spend several days enjoying St Andrews itself.

If you want to go further afield, then I would recommend you go up the M9 (motorway) and join the A9 road and head for Pitlochry (this is in the county of Perthshire and visit Blair Castle, as well as some of the lovely villages en route. Here you will be in the Scottish Highlands, but it's only an hour from the Kingdom of Fife. The scenery is wonderful.

Do go into one of the Tourist Board Offices (there's a good one at St Andrews)and get Information Brochures on Fife, Perthshire or any other part of Scotland.

Hope this is of some help. Enjoy your visit.
Kind regards
May
