Driving Scotland 4 to 5 days

Jump to last reply

We're planning a trip to the UK in June, and I'm stuck on Scotland. I know I want to do too much in too little time, so I need help! We will arrive in Glasgow on in the afternoon of June 19, where we will rent a car and begin the Scotland leg of the trip. I have 6 nights, flying home from Edinburgh on the morning of the 7th day. Here's what I want to see:
1. Jacobite train (kids can ride with my husband while I make the drive from Ft. William to Mallaig with my dad?)
2. Isle of Skye (know I can't see it all...)
3. Loch Ness
4. Eilean Donan Castle
5. Stirling Castle
6. Full day of Edinburgh at least

I'm not certain about roadways, etc., but just looking at a map I was thinking this:
Night 1: Arrive in Glasgow, rent car
Night 2: Leave early A.M. for Fort William, half of party catch Jacobite train. Everyone ferry over to Portree for the night.
Night 3: Tour Isle of Skye. Remain in Portree for the night.
Night 4: Visit Loch Ness and Eilean Donan Castle. Spend night somewhere nearby?
Night 5: Visit Stirling Castle and Head to Edinburgh for the night.
Night 6: Full day of Edinburgh, flying out tomorrow morning.

We're looking for the stunning landscape with a little bit of history thrown in. I've seen a tour with what looked like the ideal itinerary (minus Stirling) http://www.highlandexplorertours.com/Skye but we plan to do the driving ourselves. It also looks like maybe they just pass by some of the places that we would like to stop and really check out.
Can it be done?
