Looking at maybe planting 2 or 3 apple trees.

We were thinking more for cider but obviously be good eater aswell if we didn't do the cider.

We are in South west Scotland.

Can anyone suggest the best variety's and how long from planting before bearing fruit?

Scottish members will be better placed than me to suggest varieties and/or rootstocks that do well where you are: I would also hope/think that any local grower or garden centre would avoid varieties that won't do well in your neck of the woods.

If buying from a non-local seller, just give 'em a call:  they should "know their apples" LOL.
