... Regional flights are a great value, just make sure to check luggage requirements for size and weight, we Americans tend to travel with a lot of baggage:-) Glasgow airport has a bus line that runs to the train station where we jumped on a regional train for a one hour journey east to Edinburgh.

It was extremely dark and we were taken into many cold, bare rooms of what were peoples homes back in the 1600's.
