7 Days in Scotland--where to spend 3 nights away from Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

Just booked a ticket to Edinburgh at the end of August/beginning of September (Arriving Sunday August 28 and Departing Sunday September 4th). I'll spend two nights in Edinburgh at either end of the trip and would like to visit some of the highlands or other natural areas of Scotland. I'm comfortable renting a car and enjoy scenic drives, scenic walks/hikes, and touring castles and historic houses.

I had considered driving up to Braemar area for Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday nights, but I'd read about the Highland Games being the first weekend in September. Would it be too packed?

Some areas that looked like they would have interesting stuff would be Loch Lomond area, Cairngorms National Park (Braemar to Aberbeen) and Inverness. It's too much to fit into three nights. Could anyone recommend a circular drive from Edinburgh that would take three days and see some houses/castles, some areas of for Scenic walking?). I'd be fine staying in one place for three nights too. Any thoughts? I'm also open to taking a train part of the way as well.
