Completely confused - 8 days in Scotland

Jump to last reply

I've been round and round so many times on this itinerary that I'm about to stay home. Traveling in July (soon!) with 13 yr old son. Will be coming from London and have 9 nights to spend, need to be at EDI on day 10 to fly home (NYC). Original thought was London-York-Hadrian's Wall-etc., then only Edinburgh for 3-4 nights. Now it seems that my son is not as taken with the history of Northumberland as I am, and perhaps Edinburgh and points beyond in Scotland is the way to go. Questions for the learned among us: skip York entirely, and train London-Edinburgh? How many nights in Edinburgh - is three enough? He wants to do a ghost tour and we want to wander, eat, have tea, visit Holyrood, Edinburgh Castle, all the usual spots - but we are pretty fast in museums. If we venture too far afield, we will necessarily have only three nights Edinburgh. Where, then? Trains seem easier than driving unless you miss too much. To maximize time, should we take a train to a distant point (Highlands) and then drive around that area, then train it back to Edinburgh/EDI? We like castles (particularly haunted or full of history), scenery, history, quaint villages, great food, remote places. Maybe we hotfoot it up to Skye and just do that area, then back? It's unfortunate that we are out of EDI but I can't change the tickets now. Maybe we train it from London farther up, then work our way back to Edinburgh? Not enough time at all, but hoping for a taste of Scotland. Or, maybe we are attempting too much by even leaving Edinburgh! Aaaargh! Thanks for any help, in advance.
