    I love Scotland and you wouldn't have to twist my arm to go back there, especially for an AFA meet up.

    are you thinking of maybe renting an airbnb that sleeps, say 6 to 10 people?

    Depending upon how many people are interested and what we can all agree on, I think a large place is the way to go.

    Ooh! I might be interested, depending on when it is. My daughter and family live in Scotland, Dumfriesshire. It would be great to actually meet some AFA members. I am in France.

    Wow, I don't hear about Dumfriesshire very often! That is where my Ewart (maiden name) ancestry is from!

    Just sent off a quick private message to anyone who listed Scotland as their home. Let us hope we can get some interest there. Since we are all from different countries start thinking of what city you would prefer to land in and stay in. Perhaps travel as a group to places that interest us? We will definitely have a well laid out itinerary before then. Save your Christmas money for the best fish and chips in the world. I have successfully travelled using the 54321 rule for packing everything in one carry on for less trouble.

    9F8EC979-390E-47C8-A8B2-3CEB618F414C.jpgNo preferences of places etc? I have included a Brit rail map for Scotland (I hope).
    Now including a guided tour if we have close to 12 people.

    I am interested, depending on the time of year, etc.
    Have been many times. You can rent self-catering houses. My siblings and I took our spouses last year so we had 8 folks in one house. There are places that have multiple cottages you can rent out if there are quite a few people. I like to stay central - Perthshire or similar but depending on what folks want to do, you can always find places.

    Glad to have your interest. Perthshire area is a great location. People are not providing too much input. What about April before the prices skyrocket for the summer?

    9EB7B822-D619-4692-A8D7-D904566078AC.jpgSome info on Edinburgh. Tickets are most often cheaper to buy ahead of time than last minute in Scotland.

    September is another option for when the prices drop. Any one prefer one over the other.
