Need advice on Scotland itinerary

Jump to last reply

We would really appreciate some advice about our Scotland itinerary. So far, the parameters are:
-We will arrive in Edinburgh Sunday evening Aug 26 & will probably be jet-lagged.
-We have reservations for the Braemar Games so we have to be in Braemar Friday August 31 and Saturday Sep 1.
-We'll have to leave Scotland Tuesday September 4 for London.

We would like to go to the Isle of Skye, and possibly Oban/Mull. We're primarily interested in scenery & seeing the most important sights but want the trip to be fairly leisurely. Right now I'm thinking we'll leave Edinburgh on Tuesday Sep 28, spend one night in Mull, one night on Skye, one night (need help here)??, two nights in Braemar, then 2 nights in Edinburgh.

Do you think this is enough time in Edinburg? Same question for the Isle of Skye? Where else would you recommend? All suggestions would be welcome!

Also, do we need a car in Edinburgh if we stay near the city center? I thought parking might be a hassle, as well as saving on car rental if we could just walk/use city transportation.

TIA
Carolyn
