Scotland is great, you will love it. If you are going to travel within the UK, you can fly very cheaply through Easyjet and Ryan Air. They regularly sell tickets for less than £15 (excluding tax), taking you through the UK and into continental Europe. trains are reasonable, but very expensive.
If you want to experience some traditional accomodation, definitely try out the B&B's. They are generally very cheap, and can be good fun (some rather odd land ladies).
Americans love 'Bath' for it's Roman history. Loads od castles and all sorts of old ruins (Stone Henge etc) depending on what ever takes your fancy.
If you are in to diving, go to West coast of Scotland or Devon/Cornwall for some great scenery or wrecks.
If you coming near Buckingham, give me a shout.

I don't know how high up into Scotland I'll be getting, but I will keep the highlands in mind. I just wish I had more time there
Thanks again, Bud
