Help with Scotland itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi All,
I am hoping to get some feedback on my first draft itinerary please.
My wife and I (both in our late fifties) will fly into EDI on Fri. Sept 2nd and fly out of GLA Sept 18th.
Our plans are....

- 4 nights in Edinburgh with one day as a day trip to St Andrews.

- Day 5, pickup rental car at airport and stay that night in Kirkcudbright ( my wife's castle)
passing through Wanlockhead and Leadhills ( I lived there for as a wee boy)

- Day 6 head to Luss for an overnight stop. with a stop in Ayr along the way.

- Day 7 head for a 2 night stay in Oban. Passing through Inveraray....

- Day 9 leave Oban for Portree via bridge for 4 nights.

- Day 13 leave Portree for overnight stay in Glencoe ( via Ferry?? not sure of this yet, we
may go back over the bridge)

- Day 14 head to GLA to return car and head to Glasgow for our remaining 3 nights.

Does this seem feasible?

Trying to keep the long drives to a minimum, I know the drive from Oban to Portree will be long.

Please give me your thoughts, it would be much appreciated.

Sorry if it is a little long.
