Dinnae do them often as I prefer going abroad, but with nae fitba next weekend, I thought I might go somehwere nearer home. Was in Oban a few years back so not really wanting to go back there so soon, done Inverness a few times, anywhere else nice time of year?

Saying that, its £100 to Palma return :leb:

North East of England? Northumberland is good for a whole range of interests.

I'm off to Palma

Depends what kinds of things you want to do I guess but I've been to Aberfeldy a couple of times recently and really liked it. Perth / Stirling are good too for a weekend break, even though it feels a bit weird going places that are only half an hour away. Arran is nice for a weekend, places down Loch Fyne too. I actually quite like Montrose as well.

Lake District is nice, but not in Scotland ... as you'll be aware! Lots of good deals to be had.

£100 to Palma, almost certainly warm and sunny

I'm off to Durban for a safari and a cruise back to Venice starting that weekend. That's not Scotland either.

What about a tour round a few distilleries? Lots of them in Scotland!

Was in Aberfeldy at the weekend there and as Rocky says it’s nice. Watched the Livi match in the Black Watch pub and was more than comfortable going radge when we scored both goals (wife less than impressed!). Stayed at the Moness which has a pool, steam room etc and loads of activities locally.

Few places my family have enjoyed visiting in the past 3-4 years:

Aviemore - Hired a big cottage there with a hot tub etc a few years ago for my Mum's 60th, was good. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area for bairns and big bairns.

Glencoe - Spectacular scenery and nice walks etc, some decent reasonably priced hotels in the area that occasionally pop up on Groupon and the likes.

Loch Lomond - Again loads to see and do. Stayed in a cottage in Luss last summer for a week and had a great time. Water sports on the Loch or there's a variety of stuff to do at Lomond Shores.

Don't think you can wrong with a weekend in Scotland, some of the obvious ones like Aviemore and Pitlochry or St Andrews are decent if a wee bit over crowded- they have the benefit of more shops and places to eat though.
Anything from Newtonmore upto Grantown on Spey is great. Some lovely walks. Fort William, Fort Augustus also offer quite a bit.

from experience, folk from the central belt tend to automatically head north, but the borders and dumfries and galloway are also great. Moffat, Kirkcudbright,Hawick etc are decent.

The islands are wee bit more of a mission, but seriously worth the effort. CalMac have a great wee website for working out whats doable.

Definitely no games next weekend?
Would be good if there is! I'm up in Edinburgh for 2 weeks. Even though it's SC semis weekend I guess we could play Killie or the huns depending on how the top 6 fixtures pan out? Be nice to take in at least one game.

For easy access from the central belt Arran is not a bad shout. Glen Rosa is walking distance from Brodick and on a good day, at the top of the Glen looking down into Glen Sannox, it's as spectacular as anywhere in Scotland.

Cullen on the north-east Riviera. Nice beach, golf course right next to it. Home of the Skink and there's a guy in an American Airstream trailer down at the beach does fantastic coffee. Then a stroll along the beach and up the cliff path to Portknockie.

The course is a wee bit of a mecca for golf geeks and nerds, I've not played there but it's on the list, hopefully this year. That entire coast line from Inverness to Aberdeen is great, especially if you like golf..

Lovely part of the world - I was up in Banff watching Bonnyrigg in the Scottish this year.
