Day 2-4: Edinbourgh
Day 5: Pick up rental car, drive to see Dunnottar Castle. Stay in Stonehaven area.
Day 6: Tour Crathes and Drum castles. Drive to Dufftown to stay 2 nights.
Day 7: Tour of Balvenie Distillery. Stay in Dufftown again.
Day 8: Drive to Gairloch to stay the night???
Day 9: Drive from Gairlock to Torridon area. Stay two nights in Torridon.
Day 10: Torridon
Day 11: Drive to Skye. Stay 3 nights in Skye.
Day 12: Skye
Day 13: Skye
