Got our package today..the book is gorgeous! Now I am even more excited to see the premier of 'Brave' during my Disney cruise next month!

We received the France package just a couple of weeks ago, and DS REALLY wants to do that trip. He is a big WWII history buff.

there are too many trips to choose from..i need more $ and more vacation time!

Got the book yesterday as well--beautiful! The ABD rep gave us the hint "Nessie" so there is no doubt about it, Scotland. But we are interested in the details--and wonder as well if there is a multiple country trip (England and Scotland--discussed before in these boards) or will the focus be all Scotland?

Also agree: too many choices, too little time and money!

I'm wishing, too. We really want to visit England, and I love ABD even though we could do England on our own, but I've already been to France and boyfriend has no desire to visit France, so I don't want to book Nights and Lights. Would LOVE an England-only or England/Scotland trip!

If Scotland is a 7-8 night adventure, there really wouldn't be adequate time to go to London IMO. Scotland has more than enough to do in a week. Plus London is kind of far from Edinburgh - you'd spend most of the day on the train unless you flew. I'd bet you'll see a couple of days in Edinburgh, a day in Inverness with a tour of Loch Ness, and then somewhere else - Isle of Skye, Glasgow, Sterling... lots of options. Hopefully they go up the Isle of Skye which is the prettiest area.

I agree and hope that they keep it to just Scotland. I've had a chance to travel extensively around Scotland (even St. Kilda!), and I'd love to see them do the Isle of Skye, but I suspect it will be: Edinburgh, Loch Ness with Urquhart Castle, Stirling and maybe Glasgow. St. Andrews was another place I thought of with Scone Abbey. But I hope they surprise me with Skye, Mull or even Arran. Sure is fun to speculate. Looking forward to the itinerary on the 22nd.

I wish they would include more and make it longer. If not, I guess I'll have to add some time on my own, but then I'll be responsible for everything, and that's not as much fun as letting ABD take care of everything.

I started looking around what's interesting in Scotland last night. I found the website visitscotland.com which is also promoting the movie Brave! Anyway, it would be nice to do a back to back Ireland/Scotland ABD!! I think that would be great - two unknown countries for me!!

I would love to see an England/Scotland trip. I loved the Knights and Lights but it only piqued my interest to see more of England.

Update: Just got confirmation that it is focused just on Scotland. There definitely will be a tie in crossed with the movie Brave for the itinerary.
