Because I am here right now I wanted to write a short post. I know it isn’t a country in Asia but flights to Europe can be so expensive that I thought it would be worthwhile to give my perspective on how to get to Scotland when you are on a budget:
Scotland has long been a popular travel destination. Since the advent of cheap flights, this has only increased. There are currently cheap flights on offer throughout the travel year ñ though prices tend to be lower in the off season months of December and March and highest in the summer months of June and August. Cheap flights to Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, and cheap flights to Aberdeen, one of the United Kingdon’s main cities for the oil industry, can be booked from domestic locations, such as London or Manchester, as well as internationally.
The other main cities of Scotland include Perth, situated within an hours car journey of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Scotland’s most populous city situated on the west coast and the river Clyde, St Andrews, the university and golfing destination and Inverness, the capital of the Highlands region.
Flights within Scotland, from Edinburgh to Inverness, or from Inverness to Aberdeen, for example, tend to be among the cheapest available as domestic UK destinations. Distances between these places are quite short, with no one flight likely to take longer than an hour. International travel can usually includes flights from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Aberdeen; Inverness airport, though it has experimented with international flights in the past, currently serves only domestic air traffic.
Edinburgh is well known for its annual Fringe Festival. Glasgow is a vibrant cultural city with many museums, restaurants and pubs. Aberdeen is close to the beaches of the North Sea coast and golfing resorts. Inverness is an ideal location for hill walkers.
Wherever you go in Scotland, you will be sure to see beautiful landscape and friendly people who speak such funny English it will be difficult to understand.
