4 weeks in Scotland

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in the beginning stages of planning a four-week adventure to Scotland in September and possibly the beginning of October2015. Scotland is number one on my destination bucket list. My husband and I are in our mid 60’s. Our primary objectives would be to see natural scenic beauty, take up to 6-8 km day hikes, explore castle’s and abby’s, enjoy traditional music, take in an Highland Festival (Braemar, Pitlochry, or Invercharron), relax and enjoy the culture and people, and learn more of Scotland’s history. We have tentatively thought about staying in Edinburgh-4 days, Pitlochry-3 days, Inverness-4 days, Ullapool 4-days, Portree-3 days, Fort William-4 days, Oban or Inveraray-3 days, and Stirling 3 days. We will rent a vehicle (except for Edinburgh) to travel around the country and to take day road trips. We are accustomed with driving challenging roads, having driven coastal and inland regions in Ireland and Italy for example. We are thinking about a train ride either from Edinburgh or Ft. William to Inverness. We will probably generally stay in B and B’s or hotels. We love B and B’s because you sometimes meet other travelers and we have found innkeepers to be generally very welcoming and helpful. We are very open to suggestions about specific towns to stay in or places to see or experience. Any feedback about this tentative itinerary or suggestions for this trip would be greatly appreciated.
