To ceb1a21... have you used the Greyhound bus service much in the States? I'm debating whether to get a bus pass or not so i could travel extensively around the mighty country...

To kidjuxta: I can't say I've used the Greyhound but my family uses it to get from Penn. to NY and they're ok with it. I guess it's the most practical way of getting from here to there, although I would use Amtrak (the train). Either way is fine, just don't use a taxi, for god's sakes.... It's not worth the long, tedious bus ride if you'll be going from the west to the east coast, unless you'll enjoy watching miles upon miles of cow country. Happy trails!

Are you going to Edinburgh?? If you are in Scotland at all it is hard not to miss, but if you have a chance I would say come and have a look around. (I live there, forgive me if I am slightly sycophantic about it) In the summer Edinburgh is absolutely crawling with tourists- not that there's anything wrong with that, it probably provides half of the city's income, but during June to September you are probably likely to see more tourists than Edinburgh-dwellers who usually take off during August if they can. The big attraction is the Festival, which runs, I think, during August and July, and provides an excuse for any kind of entertainment, plays, alternative theatre, street mime, music, comedy, a book festival, fireworks and of course the Edinburgh Tattoo, which is most definitely worth going to if you can get a ticket. (It's a huge military-type display on the esplanade of the Edinburgh Castle) Also, Edinburgh has about 8 million pubs and restaurants of every description, some nice museums and a lot of old buildings if you are so inclined. Not forgetting the Botanical Gardens which are beautiful, like a huge oasis in the city centre.
So if you end up in Edinburgh, my must-see list would be...the Castle, the Botanical Gardens and the Book Festival.
I hope that wherever you go this summer you will have a good trip!
