Scotland after a week at Glen Coe

Jump to last reply

I've spent several days reading ### posts on Scotland and the more I read, the more I want to see everything, and now I'm very confused as to where to go for the 8 days we have unscheduled in Scotland! Please help!

Background: My mom and I have 3 weeks booked in the UK starting Sept 5th. We fly into Edinburgh and spend 3n/2 days there, then on the 8th we'll take a train/bus or taxi to Glen Coe where we have a week's hiking holiday booked. Then we have an unplanned week for touring Scotland before we need to take the train to London on the 23rd. The question is what to do for said week?! Skye has been recommended over and over again, so that's very interesting to us. I could possibly rent a car in Ft. William (?) on the 15th and drive to the island and spend 2-3 nights, and then.... suggestions? My mom and I enjoy driving thru scenic areas, walking, and visiting the occasional castle or country house. I would love to treat Sheila (mom) to a stay in a wonderful country house for 2 nights, the Cameron House hotel in Dunbartonshire has caught my eye, but I'm wondering if I can fit it into a reasonable itinerary as I'd probably have to return the rental car to Ft. William. Also, having just spent a week in Glen Coe, is Loch Lomond too similar?

So:
5th - 7: Edinburgh
8th: travel to Glencoe
9 - 14th: hiking holiday at Glencoe
15th - 17th: Skye?
18 -19th: Loch Lomond or ?
20 - 22nd: ??
23rd: train to London from Ft. William, or Glasgow or EDI, depending on where we end up at.

I'm sure this won't be our last trip to Scotland (there's an Arran hiking trip that looks good for next year!) so we don't need to cram everything in to this one visit but based on our last 2 driving trips to the UK, we do tend to cover a lot of ground in a day...

Any and all suggestions are most welcome!! Allison
