8 days in Scotland...HELP!

Jump to last reply

Hello All:

I am really struggling to choose the best itinerary for our April trip to Scotland. We will be there for 8 days.

Our daughter is at university in St. Andrews. So we will fly into Edinburgh, immediately drive to St. Andrews and spend the first 3 days there.

We will leave St. Andrews early morning on the 4th day.We want to head out to the Isle of Skye and have that day and the next 2 nights before we head back to Edinburgh for 3 days.

I am a photographer and really want to see a few castles and beautiful scenery along the way.

Any ideas on this? Is it too ambitious? Should we cut Edinburgh to 2 days?

Any ideas on where to stop on the journey from St. Andrews to Skye? Any tips on where to stay in Skye? Any ideas on what would be a good route from Skye back to Edinburgh so that we hit some nice places?

Yes, I am full of questions!!\

I don't need info on Edinburgh of St. Andrews. It's just the time between them that is throwing me off and I really want to make good use of a small amount of time.

Any and all tips or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

THANK YOU!
