Scotland with a friend: Edinburgh to Skye

MeFi has some fab posts on this topic, so for now limiting this request to ideas around a proposed Edinburgh to Skye route over, say, a 10-day period in a shoulder month like May or September. We are two open-minded active outdoorsy women who want a balance of quirk, adventure and comfort. Plenty of mindblowing scenery a must. [more inside]

Where can I join an evening zoom call in central Edinburgh?

I have to run an hour-long training session tomorrow from 17:30-18:30 UK time. Originally, I was going to do this from home, but since it was scheduled, I've been booked (by work) to go to Edinburgh. Is there anywhere within half an hour of Waverley Station where I could join a Zoom call for an hour, at this hour (17:30-18:30) specifically? [more inside]

This IS a Scottish castle and we have MANY AirBnBs

Let's all just continue doing Scotland travel advice! We are visiting the country in October: spending a few days in Edinburgh, then riding a fancy train, then upon disembarking would like to stay out in a cottage or castle for a couple days to decompress. We do not want to rent a car so we are looking for lovely locations within an hour or two train/bus/ferry ride from Edinburgh. [more inside]

Help with Airbnb dispute

I stayed with my partner at an Airbnb last week on vacation. On the day we left the host messaged me claiming someone on their property had seen an "unauthorised third person" leaving on the day we checked out, and is now attempting to charge us an extra fee for this person via Airbnb's dispute service. There was no third person, but I can't prove that. Looking for advice on how to proceed. [more inside]

Covid Testing Rules for International Visitors to UK/Scotland

I'm a fully vaccinated citizen of the USA. I'm planning on a trip to Scotland, where the self-isolation rules have recently been lifted, and where the definition of a "vaccinated" person have been updated to include those vaccinated in the USA. But it still seems that I have some protocols to follow, involving taking a test on and before Day 2. My questions center around this process. [more inside]
