Scotland

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Scotland in August for my husband and I and another couple. I have booked three nights in Edinburgh (we are seeing the Military Tattoo!), a night between in the Trossachs, in process of booking a night on Skye, then heading to Inverness for two nights to use as a base to explore surrounding area and Highlands.

I would love any suggestions for best things to see/stops to make along the routing from Edinburgh to Trossachs and then Skye. Suggestions for routing/sights on Skye. Most importantly suggestions for best trips out from Inverness in any direction, how far to drive out to see great places and make it back in a day, anything in Inverness to see/do/eat.

So far I have plan to go through Stirling between Edinburgh and Trossachs, drive through Glencoe and then make the scenic drive from Ft. William to Mallaig and cross on ferry. Take bridge back over leaving Skye and head over to Inverness.

We would like to see a couple of castles (best ones?), a distillery or two (best ones?), as an anthropologist, I would love to see some of the archaeological sites (but realize they may be too far out from where we will be?). We are foodies and pub fans for sure. Scenery and history lovers.

Thank you in advance!!!
