First trip to Scotland - Please review my itinerary?

Jump to last reply

My sister and I will be visiting Scotland for the first time in May. We are so excited but are looking for suggestions concerning the first draft of our itinerary. We plan to say at HILTON Hotels as much as possible so we can use the point system. We love to hike and have heard such great things about The Isle of Skye and hope to spend a few days there. Of course we want to see a proper castle and historical sites. Any recommendations on driving routes and timing, things to see (or not to see), where to stay on The Isle of Skye and Glencoe/Oban would greatly be appreciated. Thank you so much!

Scotland May, 2013

Edinburgh – Dunkeld - Isle Of Skye - Glasgow

Tuesday, May 14th – Arrive In Edinburgh

Day 1 Tuesday Edinburgh – Stay The Night
Hilton Hotel (Points)

Day 2 Wednesday Edinburgh – Stay The Night
Rosslyn Chapel/Whitburn Church – Family History

Day 3 Thursday Drive To Dunkheld - Hilton (60 Miles 2hrs) - Stay The Night
See sights along the way

Day 4 Friday Dunkheld Hilton – Stay The Night
Day Trip – to Oban (90 miles one-way)/Glencoe Loop

Day 5 Saturday Dunkheld Or Aviemore – Stay The Night
Day Trip

Day 6 Sunday Drive To Mallaig Ferry To Isle Of Skye (170 Miles 4hrs) – Stay The Night
Day Trip

Day 7 Monday Isle Of Skye – Stay The Night
Day Trip

Day 8 Tuesday Drive To Glasgow (200 Miles 5hrs)

Day 9 Wednesday Leave for London

Another option would be to stay only 2 nights in Dunkeld and 3 on the Isle of Skye or 2 nights in Dunkeld, 2 in Skye and 1 near Glencoe to break up the drive from Skye to Glasgow.
We might need to cut one day so we can leave for London on Tuesday. Which place would be best to cut?
