Travel: Currently there are great offers on flights to Scotland from Bristol. If you want to travel in style, catch the overnight sleeper train from London to Aviemore direct (£140+ rtn although you can get Bargain Berths for £90 for 2 people sharing, none available for those dates yet but keeping an eye on it...). There's also the mega cheap overnight bus option.... If you're thinking of booking get in touch with us, we have information on various transport options
