3 weeks in Scotland, no car

Jump to last reply

Hi all, Helping my daughter plan 3 weeks in Scotland from 8/29 to 9/17 before starting a semester in Spain. She will be almost 22 and has previously solo-traveled Iceland and Budapest. She'll be flying into Glasgow and wants to do a lot of hiking/exploring, interest in museums and history, with a hostel budget. I've never been, so I'd love some advice from the experts given that info. Initial thoughts:

Arrive Glasgow - 3 days, then bus/train to Edinburgh
Edinburgh - 3 days, bus to Cairngorms National Park
Cairngorms - 2 days, bus to Inverness
Inverness to Fort Williams, combo walking, bus, train, boat? - 4 days
Jacobite Train from Fort William to Mallaig - spend a day in Mallaig, 2 days
Ferry to Skye - 4 days
2 days to get from Skye back to Edinburgh

Does this route make sense and is it doable via bus & train? Anything redundant or a "must see" missing?

Thanks for any and all advice!
