Opinions on Scotland Itinerary Needed

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Ireland/Scotland/England for September of 2013. I have just completed (after a lot of reading) what I hope is a reasonable itinerary for the Scotland portion. I'm not so much asking for opinions on what I have decided to see, because that is still somewhat flexible and in the planning stages, but rather on the amount of time I'm alloting for each place, the amount of driving, etc. We like to stay on the go, but I don't want to be out of breath all the time, either. We're interested in scenery, castles, distilleries, and other places of historic interest. Here goes:

Arrive Edinburgh, stay 3 nights
See Edinburgh Castle, Rosslyn Chapel, Royal Mile, maybe take the HOHO or a walking
tour.
Rent car, drive to Pitlochry or Blair Atholl for 1 night
Stop for a time at St. Andrews on the way. See Blair Castle.
Drive to Inverness for 1 night. Stop to see Culloden Moor on the way.
See Loch Ness and Urquhart, maybe take a lake cruise.
Drive to Isle of Skye, maybe Portree, or maybe another place, for 2 nights.
See Talisker Distillery, Dunvegan Castle, and soak up the scenery.
Drive to Glasgow for 2 nights.
See Loch Lomond and the sights in Glasgow.
Return to Edinburgh, return the car, and move on.

Too many drives with not enough nights in between? Any suggestions?
