Scotland

Jump to last reply

Well....here goes. This is my rough itinerary. I welcome any suggestions and critiques!
We are: Me, DH and my sweet mother (74). We love museums, castles, history, art, flowers, and FOOD! We travel together frequently and my sweet mother is one tough cookie but I don't think we will be on any "3 mile" hikes on this trip.

22nd -26th June - EDINBURGH
(4 nights) (11 Nelson Street Bed and Breakfast )
These are just some ideas:
1. The Castle
2. Royal Mile
3. St. Giles cathedral
4. The People’s Story Museum
5. Huntly House, museum
6. Palace of Holyroodhouse
7. Princes Street Gardens
8. The Royal Botanic Gardens
9. The Scotch Whisky Experience
10. Visit the Old Calton and Greyfriars cemeteries
11.. Craigmillar Castle and Duddingston Village??
** Maybe take the bus to see Rosslyn Chapel??

Music for the evening:
Sandy Bell’s and The Royal Oak. Any other suggestions.
Cloisters Bar, The Bow Bar

CALLANDER

26th and 29th June ….TROSSACHS – 3 nights
(Leny Estate, Callendar cabins)
1. Doune Castle and the Scottish Antiques Centre outside of town
2. Bridge of Allan Brewery
3. Balquhidder (told to go here on another blog, have no idea on this one) I think it might be a great drive with stops for scenery
4. Crieff and stop at Drummond Castle Garden.
5.. Grouse Distillery ??

SKYE:
Would you suggest this route???
Route #1 (outward): Head up to Fort William then turn right on the A830, the "Road to the Isles" through Glenfinnan (worth a stop for the Bonny Prince Charlie monument and the viaduct) then on to Mallaig (stopping at the Arisaig beaches) before getting the Calmac ferry over to Skye.

June 29th – July 2 - Skye – 3 nights B & B Ben Tianavaig
1. Talisker Distillery
2. Castle Dunveagan - little boat tour below to see seal colony – pretty neat
3. 2mile hike 5 minutes from Ben Tianavaig called Scorrybreac.
4. Attadale (I think right off of Skye) in Plockton is a privately owned garden
5. Several walks around the area. (Scorrybreac. etc..)

OBAN
1 night DUnheanish Guest house
Urquhart Castle - is this close enough nearby to visit and is it worth driving to? We want to just enjoy the town for the evening.

MULL
July 3-6 –3 nights Cuidhe Leathain - Tobermory
1 - We are there during the Mendelssohn on Mull festival and plan on taking in many concerts at various locations.
2. ferry over to Iona
3. Ferry over to Staffa (Fingal's Cave)
4. Castle Duart (hopefully there will be a concert here)
5. . Ulva Island
Again, I think we will drive around and "experience" this island.

Back to Oban for one night and then on to Edinburgh. We (me and sweet mother) fly on to Dublin for three nights and then home.

I have food places picked out but if anyone wants to suggest something I would appreciate it. I welcome any advice. I have used every trip report and every response I can find to other postings. Thanks so much!
