10 days London Scotland

Jump to last reply

Hi forum! My wife and I will be crossing the pond in late October for 11 days. We fly into London and out of Edinburgh. Since our time is short this time, my thinking was to spend 4 days in London area with maybe a day trip to Oxford and then take sleeper train to Inverness and motor around the highlands a bit, ending in Edinburgh. The itinerary would look like this:

Day 1--arrive early morning, drop bags at hotel (considering Victoria Palace?) and take a relaxing bus tour of London, and explore for the rest of day
Day 2--explore London
Day 3--day trip to Oxford (perhaps Wndsor Castle combined tour?)
Day 4--explore London, perhaps day trip to Stonehenge (is this a must see with so little time?)
Night Sleeper train to Inverness.
Day 5--pick up car drive south west to isle of Skye, overnight in Skye (Slighachan?)
Day 6--explore Skye, overnight in Skye (should I spend 2 nights here as opposed to a different location?)
Day 7--drive to Fort William, overnight in Fort William or Inverary
Day 8--drive to Culzean Castle, overnight in Ayr (would I be better off going to Stirling?)
Day 9--drop car in Edinburgh
Day 10--Edinburgh
Day 11--depart late afternoon

A little extra info. I hear that it gets dark mighty early so we'd have to gt an early start. We are hoping to spend at least one overnight in a castle and would appreciate any suggestions. Any comments on this itinerary would be welcome. Thanks so much.
