Fine tuning Scotland May 2013

Jump to last reply

I posted my original question with the wrong year in the title.

We now have hotels and transportation worked out. We are not going to rent a car, but have hired a car/driver for a few days and are hoping to get some suggestions for great things to see on those days we have a driver.

Based in Edinburgh we want to see Falkirk, Stirling, Linlithgow. The Wheel is a definite.
What else would you recommend. Interested in scenery, ruins, churches, etc. We have the whole day.
Inverness: Jacobite boat tour of Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle, then Culloden, Cawdor Castle, Craig PHadrig and what else? These are over a couple of days.
A driver will take us from Inverness to Skye: good places for photography, unique places along the way?

Skye: two nights , one full day of car/driver: same as above.

Skye to Oban drive, need suggestions.
We will be doing a tour of Mull/Iona and Staffa one day.

Also, where would be the best chance of hearing some good bagpipe music? Not hours of it, but I do actually like it.
Also, very interested in Puffins!

Thanks for any suggestions. We have 10 nights in Scotland, just trying to make the best of our time.
