Scotland for a week with 6 1/2 year old

Jump to last reply

We are thinking of going to Scotland at the end of August (I know...this is kind of a last minute trip) with our 6 1/2 year old. I have been doing a lot of reading and I am having trouble narrowing down where to go. If it were just my husband and myself we would do more of a driving around the country trip but that would not be good for our daughter. Therefore, I realize we will not see everything. So my questions are:

1) Where to go? Please help me narrow down. Edinburgh for sure. Then do we go to Glasgow, Oban, Dundee, and/or Inverness??? Are any of these day trips from one point? I am at a loss.

2) Once you are in the towns, do you need a car?

3) Should we rent a car or just take the train from town to town?

We love natural beauty but also want to minimize the driving because we do not want our daughter on the ipad. :)

The thought was to fly in and out of Edinburgh but if you have other suggestions that would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you so much for your insight!
