2 week trip through scotland, need some advice

Jump to last reply

In a few weeks i will be traveling to Scotland (from the Netherlands) as a backpacker, sleeping in hostels if possible. My idea is to fly to london and take the train to Edinburgh from there. After that i would be taking the train from Edinburgh ->Glasgow->Sterling-> Loch Lomond -> Oban, taking the ferry from there to Jura and Islay (I love whiskey and hikes). After that I would travel back to Edinburgh (by that time the festival should have started).

I hope you can give me advice on the following:
Is above mentioned route possible in 2 weeks, by train and ferry? (I dont have a driverslicense)

What should I definitely do during the festival in Edinburgh?

Is it worth it to buy a railpass in my situation, or better to just buy train tickets at the station?

Any other tips? I like budgettravel, castles, whiskey, hikes, mountain/hill views and food- especially odd food I can not eat anywhere else in the world.

Thank you in advance!
