London, Liverpool, Scotland Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I have come up with a tentative itinerary for our upcoming trip. I would love any feedback.

Sunday, June 29, arrive London in am. Day open

Monday, June 30, Harry Potter tour in afternoon

Tuesday, July 1, London, Day open.

Wednesday, July 2, Leave London for Liverpool. Mersey Ferries, Magical Mystery Tour. Overnight in Liverpool.

Thursday, July 3, Liverpool. The Beatles Story, Leave Liverpool for Edinburgh. Overnight in Edinburgh.

Friday, July 4, Edinburgh, Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyroodhouse, Rosslyn Chapel. Overnight in Edinburgh.

Saturday, July 5, Drive towards Inverness, Scone Palace, Blair Castle, Black Isle. Overnight in Inverness.

Sunday, July 6 – Inverness. Culloden Moor, Clava Cairns, Fort George, Brodie Castle. Overnight in Inverness.

Monday, July 7 – Leave Inverness towards Drumnadrochit. Urquhart Castle/Loch Ness. Fort William – take afternoon Jacobite Steam Train. Overnight in Fort William or Glencoe

Tuesday, July 8 – Drive towards Stirling, possibly drive along Loch Lomond, Doune Castle, Stirling Castle. Overnight in Stirling – possible castle stay.

Wednesday, July 9 – Depart for home from Glasgow or Edinburgh

And now for some random questions:
We have done the Hop on/off bus tours in other cities, and are considering it for Liverpool, Edinburgh, and Inverness. I know there are several different companies that do them. Any recommendations?

London pass with travelcard. Is it worth it? We have been to London before and did all the main touristy things, so we don’t necessarily need to inside, although we wouldn’t mind seeing the places again.

When to rent a car? As I mentioned, we are thinking about getting a London Pass with travel card to take care of while we are in London. We could take train London to Liverpool, and then Liverpool to Edinburgh. But do we want to drive to be able to stop anywhere along the way? We will definitely get a car for when we are done in Edinburgh to drive through the rest of the trip. But since we want to go to Rosslyn Chapel, is it worth having a car to explore other things in that area? My husband will be doing most of the driving, and he has driven in England before. He seems to be leaning towards wanting a car the entire time just for the freedom factor, and because he knows that public transport costs will add up. But then of course, we know we need to figure in cost of parking in each city if our accommodations do not have parking available and the insane cost of gas. So right now it's a toss up.

Thank you!
