3 week stay in Scotland

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are seniors who stopped in Scotland for a couple of days during a very recent cruise to the British Islas. We loved what we saw (the village of Luss on the west bank of Loch Lomond and Inveraray Castle) and felt welcomed by the natives. We're thinking of spending as much as 3 weeks in Scotland starting in very late July or August. (This to get away from the "HOT" Las Vegas August heat). We definitely want to take in some of the festivals in Edinburgh that occur in August. We are not interested in any type of strenuous activity (hiking, parasailing, base jumping; you get the idea). We're getting on in age. We can rent a car where suggested or take public transportation by air, sea and land. I've seen enough Cathedrals and castles and museums in the last 60 days to last a lifetime, but a few more wouldn't kill me (as would the base jumping). We are a few years past our hostel staying days. (The wife has gotten used to the better things in life. And you know what they say...). We don't need to see all that Scotland has to offer. Days of relaxing, strolling down a lovely street with shops and eateries are certainly acceptable. We are very open to ideas and specific suggestions on places to see, things to do, and places to stay.
Thank you
