Road tripping: Isle of Skye to London

Jump to last reply

We need some help planning the final leg of our three week trip with the three kids (ages 6,11,13).
Following a week in Edinburgh, a weekend wedding in the Highlands, and a week in a cottage on the Isle of Skye.....We have four nights remaining for an adventurous family road trip from our cottage rental in Portree (Isle of Skye) to London. We will stay in London for our final 4 nights.

A few ideas of things that appeal to us (but not mandatory)
2 stops of 2 nights each - easier with kids
Stratford-Upon-Avon
Cotswolds
Stonehenge
Possibly a little cycling or walking
Canal boat trip

What are your thoughts on two good overnight spots with good opportunities to do some exploring and outdoor activities?
We love being active, love great food, love trying anything new and don't want to fill our days going from tourist site to tourist site. A good balance of all of the above would be our dream vacation. Our kids have done two big European trips before so we know what they (and we) can handle!
