Rough Itinerary for Scotland, please more help

Jump to last reply

Here's a rough itinerary for our trip early July. I realize there is a lot of driving, but we love driving in scenic areas. Usually we stay in places more than one night, but I do have several one-nighters here.

Castles, gardens, great scenery and back roads, good restaurants and B&Bs or small inns/hotels our priorities.

So here is what I have at the moment. Let me know if you think too much, or if you have other suggestions in an area.

Fly from IAD to LHR on morning flight, arrive LHR, sleep over at Airport Hotel, morning flight from LHR to EDI, arrive EDI about 10AM

Day 1 ~ pick up rental car upon arrival at EDI (10AM)
Stirling Castle
Drummond Castle
Stop at Kenmore, Loch Tay if time
stay Pitlochry

Day 2 or 3
Blair Castle
House of Bruar
Dalwhinnie Distillery? Edradour Distillery?
stay Pitlochry

Day 2 or 3
Scone Palace (Highland Games)
Glamis Castle
stay Pitlochry

Day 4
Crathes Castle
Dunnotar Castle
Craigievar Castle if time
stay Ballater?

Day 5
Drive Cairngorms Park
Corgarff Castle
Cawdor Castle
stay Strathpeffer?

Day 6
Inverewe Gardens
Stay Poolewe or Gairloch?

Day 7 & 8
Attadale Gardens?
Isle of Skye/ scenic drives?
Dunvegan Castle
Stay Carter’s Rest

Day 9
Scenery /Driving Day
Leave Skye, stay somewhere around Glencoe/Ballachulish?

Day 10
Crarae Gardens
Ardkinglas Gardens
Stay Dunoon?

Day 11
Benmore Botanic Garden
Culzean Castle
stay Maybole? Ayr?

Day 12
head to Edinburgh
stay in Edinburgh @ ? ~ we want someplace where we can walk to the castle restaurants etc. We either need parking for the car, or maybe we should leave the car at the airport when we arrive from and take a shuttle/ taxi into town, and also one then back to the airport? I don’t assume we need a car in Edinburgh? Will we need it to get to the Botanic Garden?

Day 13
Edinburgh

Day 14
Fly EDI to LHR to IAD
