We recently left you an article on how to prepare for a trip to Edinburgh, based on what we had looked at, booked and researched before getting on a plane that took us from Madrid to Edinburgh. This article today I have written on the return from that trip, of which Edinburgh was only a part, and based on that experience, here are a few tips for traveling to Scotland and how to best prepare a getaway to a spectacular place.

Scotland is part of the United Kingdom and with the Brexit process that took it out of the European Union, it lost one of the privileges that any EU citizen has, to move around its territory only with the identity card of their country.

We have already explained the differences between the European Health Insurance Card and a Travel Insurance here, but it is worth remembering that, medical expenses and repatriation aside, a travel insurance should also cover you for delays in the delivery of luggage, theft of luggage in a rental car, etc. In addition something that could be very expensive, the quarantine in lodging for positive in Coronavirus.

Scotland’s airports also receive direct flights from England, Wales, Ireland, the United States, the Scandinavian countries and some Western and Central European countries. From North America, you can travel with Icelandair, which often offers good deals to fly to Glasgow with a stopover in Reykjavik. If you are traveling from Latin America, you can fly to Scotland via Madrid.

The train is perhaps the best means of transport to travel to Scotland, after the plane. It is comfortable and a good alternative to air travel from England. If you fly to Manchester, Newcastle or London, you can take a train to Scotland with the added advantage of being able to appreciate the wonderful British scenery.

As for the rest of Europe, a car ferry operates between Zeebrugge (Belgium) and Rosyth (northwest of Edinburgh). The round-trip price for passengers in high season (July and August) is around 400 euros, plus 300 euros to transport the vehicle. You can also travel to Scotland by boat from Northern Ireland, with a ferry linking the port of Belfast with the port of Stranraer.

The first time you get behind the wheel of a car in Scotland, and especially the first hour you spend driving it, is a mental workout. You will probably be tense and you will have a little bit of a hard time (especially if you have to take a traffic circle), but the human being gets used to everything, and the roads in Scotland are very good.

We took the car in Edinburgh and also returned it there. After a lot of research on the Internet, we chose Enterprise because they asked for the least deposit and they have an office in the center of Edinburgh. They retained 200 pounds on our credit card, but when we returned the vehicle and they checked that everything was all right, they released them (they reimbursed them) a few days later.

There are problems with Scottish pounds, the official currency in the United Kingdom is the pound sterling. It is, therefore, accepted in all the nations that make up the UK, but the Bank of Scotland issues its own pounds with Scottish emblems (and without the Queen).

Generally, Scotland is a safe country, like the rest of the United Kingdom, although it is advisable to take the usual precautions, such as watching your belongings at all times, as well as your personal documentation. It is also not recommended to carry large amounts of money in your purse and be careful when withdrawing money from the ATM.

Thefts are frequent in the main tourist centers, particularly in Edinburgh. Therefore, it is advisable to keep a close eye on the documentation (you can carry photocopies) and not carry a lot of money on you.  In case of loss or theft, whether of objects or documentation, it is necessary to file a report at a police station.
