Thanks for the lovely review :-).
We're planning to be open early April so hope you can make it back then.
We went into the seabird centre for something to eat. We didn't go into the centre. There's a small shop as you go in and then the cafe. It was extremely busy but luckily we managed to get a table by the window with a...More
Interesting place on the cliff edge, nice location and view. We had a group on coupon and we enjoyed the visit. Nice view from the live cameras all around and on the Bass rock, where loads of birds nest. Interesting especially for kids. Lovely day,...More

The centre is located on a cliff edge with a beautiful outdoor eating area as well as tons of goodies to take home with you in...More
Rough Draft Itinerary - First Visit to Scotland (12 Replies)
Hello, I’ve got a very rough draft of my itinerary for the first trip to Scotland for my husband and I. We are thinking of visiting in mid to late September. It seems like a pretty packed itinerary to me and I’m not sure if I should cut something out or maybe change modes of transportation between places. I was trying to plan for a 10 night trip but I’m at about 14 nights at this point which we may or may not be able to do. My itinerary is for 12 nights but I’d like to add 1 or two...More

Your inclination that this schedule is too packed is true. Sheer madness actually. Day 4 is a good 7-8 hours worth of driving (remember to add about 20% to whatever Google Maps tells you) before factoring in any time to actually visit any of those places. You really gotta cut some of that stuff out. Lewis and Skye: You are doing a drive-by of both. I'd choose your favorite and really do it (give it a couple days). If you want to conserve time, choose Skye. It also happens to be an...More
Scottish Seabird centre (2 Replies)
I have booked couple hour tour at the Scottish Seabird Centre and was just wondering if anyone knew if there is public transit I can take to get there from Edinburgh or will I just need to take a taxi, or rent a car for the day ?

Train is the easiest and it is about a 15 minute walk through the town to the beach from here.

Edinburgh to Anstruther, then Isle of May to see puffins (10 Replies)
I'm planning a day trip from Edinburgh to Anstruther (and from there, a ferry trip to the Isle of May to see puffins) on Saturday 26 June, but won't have a car. My questions are: 1. Do I catch the X60 bus from Edinburgh (where from?) to Anstruther harbour? 2. ...and if yes, how much does it cost return per adult? (what type of bus ticket should I get?) 3. ...or is there a faster/better way to get from Edinburgh to Anstruther? 4. ...or is there an easier way to see puffins from Edinburgh -...More
