ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

My wife, Susan, and I are on the Oct 1-15, 2014 trip. This is Susan's first trip to Scotland. I was there 3 times on business last century. We live in western Nort Carolina, will fly from Greenville, SC to New York (Newark) to Glasgow. We are looking forward meeting everyone on the trip.

We are enrolled in the Sept 10-24 trip. Anyone been there at that time of year? Suggestions on what clothes to pack?

Hi! Helen ~ you should have received a packet by now that includes what type of clothing to pack. It will likely be pretty cool ~ so I'm looking forward to taking warm clothing!

My husband, Fred and I are enrolled in the July 16 program. We will arrive one day early in Glasgow. We just finished watching the 10 episode History of Scotland BBC video which was great. Lots of gorgeous scenery as well as history.

Has anyone investigated the best way to communicate from Scotland to the U.S. and vice versa in case of an emergency? Is E-mail, text or phone the most economical?
Sandy Lilley Sep 04, 2014 at 10:09 PM

Probably e-mail is best. I enrolled in the STEP (Smart Traveler Enrollment Program ~
Sandy Lilley Sep 04, 2014 at 10:10 PM

A service of the Bureau of Consular Affairs ~ US Sept of State ~ I think that is a good idea.
