Scotland family trip advice

Jump to last reply

We are off for another summer adventure and once again I need your expert advice,
We are attending a wedding near Edinburgh this summer with our three kids (6,11,13). We have just over three weeks total for our trip.
Here is the bare bones of what we have so far. I'm literally at the beginning of my planning as you can see.....
June 24 fly to Heathrow from Canada
June 25-29 - WHERE TO GO? Possibly stay in London?
June 29- July 3 wedding festivities in and near Edinburgh
July 3-17 - WHERE TO GO? Possibly 5-7 days in Scottish highlands and Skye and then somewhere else.
JUly 17 fly home from Heathrow


I haven't been to the UK since I was a teenager and the rest of my family has never been.

Wish list:
We want to do four days in London either at the beginning or end of the trip.
Visit Scottish highlands and somewhere near Skye to see the coastline. Possibly stay 3 nights near Skye for some exploring.
Stay in a castle ( one of my childhood memories and one I want to pass along to the kids) somewhere?
My husband is Irish so he has a special interest in that - but not a requirement

The last two weeks are where I really need suggestions, Scotland is too small for this much time, maybe England? Ireland? Or even fly somewhere else in Europe - Holland? Denmark?
We will be renting a car so can easily get around.

We are an active family and love being outdoors. A little time along the coast would be perfect for us.
We prefer to set up a home base for minimum 3-4 nights rather than moving too much.
We are interested in history but by no means are we history buffs. We don't want to travel from one historical site to another. Maybe a little whiskey sampling mixed in? Biking?

Thanks in advance, this will be the third major trip you have helped me plan!!!
