Now we're arguing about Islay

Jump to last reply

Well, am tentatively planning a western Scotland trip 6/2011.

Isle of Skye was a definite; Mull a maybe. Thought of flying into Glasgow and driving from there. (Have been to whiskey trail, Edinburgh, and Loch Ness previously.

Considered driving south along what they call the Smugglers Coast. Not sure.

However, now DH informs me that his only reasons for wanting to go were to see Skye and Islay. They are not near each other. I didn't think of Islay as a tourist destination (it's not on driving tours in books) until I did a search here, and yes, people do go.

When I googled it, it looked like 4 hours in ferry rides. I'm ordering a CalMac schedule. However, some posts between former ops and Sheila look like one could ferry from Mull, i.e., one ferry trip.

Any comments or suggestions are helpful. Long story short, am wondering how many days this would add to trip--plus how many ferry rides.
