Did I finally get it right??? Scotland trip itinerary

Jump to last reply

With much gratitude to all that helped in the process of putting together an agenda for our trip....Here is my final plan. I can still make some changes...so if you have suggestions please let me know. First....we are 2 adults and 2 children ages 4 and 7. We are flying into Edinburgh.

1)Arrive Edinburgh- 4 nights stay (already booked can't change)

2) Rent a car and drive to Drumnadrochit(loch Ness) for 2 nights. Stopping on the way there to sight see the Falkirk Wheel, Stirling. I have found a charming Farm B&B to stay at. While there I would like to do some day trips near the area and of course do a tourist activity like a cruise of the loch. The kids will love it.

3) Drive down to Oban stay one night to cut the long journey to Isle of Arran. I'm afraid it might be too long of a day if we don't do an overnight.

4) Drive down to Isle of Arran using the ferry as well to get across. Spend 2 nights on the Isle. See the island...relax.

5) Drive to Glasgow and drop off rental car and take the train to York. Spend 1 night .
York was chosen for a reason......my husband will be going to Manchester from there and I will go onto London with the kids. Plus, it cuts the journey on the train to London . I don't think the kids will do well with a 5-7 hour train ride.

6) Train to London where we will fly out after a few days there. This portion is also booked and can't be changed.
