11 Days in Scotland - Thoughts?

Jump to last reply

Hello, we'll be taking our first trip to Scotland (with my husband and 2 year old daughter). We have a rough itinerary, now I'm trying to research more specific areas where we should stay/visit, and would particularly appreciate B&B or hotel recommendations and must-see sights.

We are trying to keep driving distances per day minimal (aiming for 2 hours, but can do up to 4), we enjoy the outdoors but are not anticipating long hikes or activities with our daughter. We want a leisurely trip, see some sights and enjoy the country. Any input or thoughts would be appreciated!

Day 1: Arrive in Edinburgh
Day 2: Edinburgh - Royal Mile, National Museum, Castle, Arthur's Seat (not expecting to do it all, just ideas)
Day 3: Drive to Stirling, have lunch, continue on to Loch Lomond, overnight there
Day 4: Drive to Oban
Day 5: Oban, possible boat tour?
Day 6: Drive to Isle of Skye - Stopping at Eilean Donan castle on the way. Where to stay? What do we want to be near? We have talked about the fairy pools and not much else.
Day 7: Isle of Skye
Day 8: Drive to Loch Ness, possible boat tour. Drive to Iverness, overnight there.
Day 9: Iverness
Day 10: Return to Edinburgh
Day 11: Depart Scotland.
