Scotland - drive around or form bases ?

Jump to last reply

Hi all !
We are planning our Scotland driving itinerary for June July 2018
There will be the four of us.. possibly five
Adult family

We are looking at flying into Glasgow or Edinburgh depending on flights which we will book in September

We have2 weeks and I don't know whether to find bases and do day trips or keep moving in either clockwise or anticlockwise direction
My first instinct is to go from Edinburgh and head north east as far as John ogroats and then head west along the coast
We do want to see the Cairngorms Loch Ness isle of Skye and the Caledonian canal area and then head down to Campbelltown and into England for a couple of days in the lakes district then across to York and then back to Glasgow or Edinburgh
My husband is thinking it will be a combination of both driving round and stopping at a base for a couple of days
I'm hoping for more bases because it will be easier to plan accommodation
It looks like there aren't too many towns up around John o groats so where do we base ourselves in that area?
Any suggestions are very much appreciated!
Ps we are not interested in whisky distilleries
Mainly into nature wildlife easy walks and history
Thank you!
