Scotland Family trip - critique itinerary - help.

Jump to last reply

Hello, We would like to take our 9 year old boy to Scotland next Summer. He loves Harry Potter and we have not been to Scotland yet (We have been to London a few years ago). I need help putting a viable itinerary with the items highlighted below. Also, we only have about a week or so to spend in Scotland:

Day 1: Visit the Edinburgh castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse
Day 2: The Royal Mile
Day 3: Side trip to visit the Alnwick Castle by car.
Day 4: Drive to Glencoe
Day 5: Stay over night in Glencoe
Day 6: Drive to Fort William and take the Jacobite train to Mallaig - not sure what to do after we arrive to Mallaig.... ?
Then head back to Edinburgh and head home the next day.

Thank you in advance
