Is my Scotland itinerary doable?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Scotland for May 2016. After much research--including reading TA forums--I've devised the following itinerary but am open to suggestions.

Please review and let me know if this is doable. We will be flying from Iowa (Midwest United States) to Edinburgh. Disclaimer: I have driven on the left and am comfortable doing so; my husband thinks he can handle it as well.

Sunday, May 8: Arrive Edinburgh

Monday, May 9 and Tuesday, May 10: Spend in Edinburgh mostly walking and taking HOHO bus to see the sights (we are avid walkers)

Wednesday, May 11--Pick up rental car at Edinburgh airport and drive to Glen Coe, spend night n Glen Coe

Thursday, May 12--Drive to Island of Skye, stay overnight in Portree

Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14--Spend on Skye

Sunday, May 15--Drive back to Edinburgh airport, drop off car, stay overnight near airport OR fly to Dublin (depending on flights)

Monday, May 16--Fly to Dublin if we didn't the day before

I am wondering: would it shorter/faster to drop of the car in Glasgow and fly from Glasgow to Dublin? Would there by any benefit to dropping the car off in Glasgow vs Edinburgh?

Thanks for your input!
