Need Help With Scotland Itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are in the beginning planning stages of a 12 - 13 night trip to Scotland (not including travel) at the end of June/beginning of July of 2015. The time of year is flexible, so would welcome any opinions on the best timing. We will fly from US to Manchester and train to Edinburgh. This first night is considered travel and not included.

Here is a rough plan of what we want to see for this trip. In addition to the highlights I've listed, we're interested in scenic areas, short nature walks and local shopping. I would like to spend at least 2 nights in each locale. We've been to Inverness, down to Loch Ness and Urqhardt Castle. We're really just hitting some of the highlights we had to skip on our last trip.

Edinburgh (2 additional nights). We have been before so just revisiting.
Stirling Castle (have been to Wallace Monument, but had to skip Stirling last time)
Balmoral Castle Tour - optional
Aviemore (for the Steam Train - optional)
Culloden Battlefield
Glenmorangie Distillery near Tain (maybe a night at Glenmorangie House)
Tain (it looked like a nice place to shop and visit).

But then here is where we go off the rails. My DH wants to go then to Islay to the Kilchomen Distillery. So there is the logistics of getting down there and where to stay in between.

From Islay to Glascow (not touring Glasgow, just dropping of the car and taking the train back to Manchester).

So, can someone take a look at our wish list and make some recommendations of how to break this trip up and what areas to stay in along the way?
