Subject: Re: Scotland accommodations
I am putting together a trip plan for Scotland too. My plan is to go for a couple of weeks in either August or September with travel around Scotland, having Glasgow and Edinburgh as bases. Truth is I am still trying to get my wife motivated to go. Both of her parents were from Scotland.

The last time in Edinburgh I stayed at the Caldonian Hotel, but this time I am thinking of The Howard. In Glasgow One Devonshire Gardens looks like a good choice. I am only going from guides but would appreciate receiving comments about these and/or other hotels. We will be renting a car with the thought of taking several day trips to the countryside.

I am using the Cadogan and Eyewitness Guides for Scotland. There are endless websites for travel information on Scotland, many of which are quite good.
