Oban to Edinburgh for Flight to Prague

My husband and l be finishing a Scotland Highland trip after 11/12 days. I'm trying to convince my husband to take the train from Oban to Edinburgh and fly on EasyJet to Prague for 4/5 days before returning back to Edinburgh/Glasgow to fly back to the US. We have about a week to travel after our 2nd trip to Scotland and Prague has always been somewhere I've wanted to visit. I've discovered that a round trip ticket from Edinburgh to Prague is currently $400 on EasyJet for 2 tickets. We would need to return to Scotland since I'm thinking that we should book our one-way ticket back via Scotland since the airfares for Prague to US seem much higher than Icelandair Glasgow to Newark. It seems like a lot of planning but getting from Oban back to Edinburgh flying out to Prague then returning to Edinburgh then on to Glasgow for our final departure to the US should be doable for a couple in our late fifties? Just typing this seems exhausting! Any thoughts or recommendations for our last leg of a trip to UK/Europe? Thanks in advance.........

Germany will not be accepting the same numbers of refugees in 6 months time. This situation will have calmed by then. Besides, they are just people without a home. They are not a threat.

All European countries are taking refugees. If you are that concerned, then you need to avoid the continent completely, sorry.

I'm not going to get too political, I just noticed that even the Channel Islands are taking some!

I don't believe they would be a treat. However, seeing homeless refugee families is not really on my vacation bucket list. It's a very unfortunate situation and I'm not convinced there is an end in sight anytime soon. But maybe I'm overly concerned.

I think you are being overly concerned, to be honest. What is reported in the US isn't always an accurate picture of what is happening in Europe.

Agree, no disrespect but from what I have seen of American TV News it tends not to report much of what goes on around the World unless it directly effects America, whereas the BBC will focus on all the big stories regardless of whether it effects Britain or not.

Besides I don't think I would give up visiting Europe because of that, you would in all probability not be affected whatsoever, so yes I would agree you are are being over concerned.
