My husband and I will be traveling the latter part of June. We will rent a car. Our itinerary is as follows:

Day 1: Arrive in Edinburgh, sleep
Day 2: Overnight Edinburgh
Day 3: Overnight Edinburgh
Day 4: Drive to Blair Atholl/Pitlochry, 77 miles, Overnight
Day 5: Drive to Nairn, 92 miles, Overnight
Day 6: Overnight Nairn
Day 7: Drive to Ullapool, 70 miles, Overnight
Day 8: Overnight Ullapool
Day 9: Drive to Poolewe/Gairloch 50 miles(or a bit further) Overnight
Day 10: Drive to Portree (or other Isle of Skye location) ~107 miles, overnight
Day 11: Overnight Skye
Day 12: Overnight Skye
Day 13: Drive to Spean Bridge 99 miles, Overnight
Day 14: Overnight Spean Bridge
Day 15: Drive to Callander/Dunblane/Stirling/Trossach's area ~105 miles, Overnight
Day 16: Overnight Same
Day 17: Drive to Edinburgh ~50 miles, flight home

I have searched the forum for posted info on this topic,. We are trying to decide between the British Heritage Pass and the Historic Scotland Explorer Pass. The Scotland pass is less expensive and may cover many of the places we wish to visit, however, I'm finding it difficult to get a complete listing of the 75 or so sites that are covered by the pass.

Any suggestions on where to find this info or comments regarding one pass vs the other? I realize it really depends on the sites we would like to visit but we haven't narrowed all of those down at this time.
