Help with just five days in Scotland

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting Scotland in late May 2013 and have 5 days total to work with. We will arrive into Edinburgh after a 2 week vacation to Turkey. We are a couple in our early thirties with a child (will have turned 4 when we travel). My tentative plan is as follows

5/21/2013 Day 1 10:30 AM arrival into Edinburgh (from IST)
5/22/2013 Day 2 Edinburgh
5/23/2013 Day 3 Edinburgh
5/24/2013 Day 4 Rent car and drive to Fort William (via Stirling)
5/25/2013 Day 5 Drive along Loch Ness to Inverness (via Urquhart castle)
5/26/2013 Day 6 Fly from Inverness to London 9 AM.

Aside from feedback on general itinerary

a) Do I need three nights in Edinburgh or a day and half is sufficient and I spend the extra day elsewhere in the Scottish Highlands. If so, what would you recommend.doing with th extra day
b) After Scotland we will be in London for 5 nights. Should i reduce London to 4 nights and add the extra day to Scotland. If so, what do you recommend doing with the extra day
