First Time to Scotland - Advice Please?

Jump to last reply

Hello! We are planning on visiting Scotland for the first time in August for seven days. Our initial thoughts are:
Edinburgh by rail or air. Hire car at airport. Hire rental property and stay in pretty village or small town around 30 minutes or so drive from Edinburgh - any suggestions where? Would like to visit the Highlands - possibly driving and staying one night in B&B if journey too much for one day? And Loch Lomond area.
Are we being too ambitious to try to fit in so much. Are the areas within reasonable distance of each other? Nice village or small town outside Edinburgh to stay?
Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
Lena
