Route/Transport from Isle of Skye to Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

Taking train from Glasgow to Isle of Skye. Will rent a car for our 2 nights on Skye. We have 2 nights to get from Skye to Edinburgh, where we will spend another 2 nights and then fly home. Recommended routes for scenery/towns/castles/sights not to miss?

I'm thinking train to Inverness, pick up a car and try this route from an earlier post I read while researching: "I'd go from Nairn > Tomintoul > Ballater > Stonehaven and stay the night in that area. Magnificent scenery, Balmoral, Crathes (AMAZING gardens and lovely house). Visit Dunnottar the next morning then Glamis in the early afternoon and on to Crail." Will it work to stay the night in Crail, visit St. Andrews and the fishing villages on the way to Edinburgh?

If this sounds like a good plan, where to stay in Stonehaven area and then in/near Crail?

Any thoughts or help appreciated! Putting this together in a hurry as we have a rare window to travel.
