Scotland- have an extra day, not sure where to spend it

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling to Ireland, then on to Scotland in September. We are young 30s and very active people. We love hiking, scenery, castles, and some history.

I'm currently trying to put together a great itinerary for us. We are weather ready (rain jackets, hiking waterproof boots), and rain nor wind nor cold will not stand in our way!!! We have been reading the forums which has helped us put together this itinerary, but I have not found one identical to this to see if we are "crazy."

Our must sees include Edinburgh for a few days, Stirling Castle, Glencoe, Isle of SKye. I think we are most looking forward to hiking, a distillery or two, and of course the castles and history.

Day 1: Flight from Dublin - land around 12:00 in Edinburgh. I think we will do some laundry, rest, and go to a pub this day (coming from 10 days in Ireland)

Day 2: Edinburgh

Day 3: Edinburgh

Day 4: Pick up rental car - go to Callander, Ben A'an hike then on to Glencoe for another 2-3 hour hike (overnight Glencoe)

Day 5: Drive through Fort William - Eilean Donan Castle, and on to Portree (overnight here for 3 nights)

Day 6: Hike Old Man of Storr and Quiraing; kilt rock (drive to) (overnight in Portree)

Day 7: Hike to Fairy Pools, Talisker distillery (Is there something else we could see this day?) (overnight in Portree)

DAy 8 -9: I'm unsure - definitely thought we could go through Stirling on our way back to Edinburgh. But maybe drive somewhere day 8 overnight, then day 9 drive through Stirling, see caslte, then overnight in Edinburgh near airport.

Day 10: Flight home

Please let me know if I should change something, or if I'm driving past something that I need to see. I have been reading a lot on Scotland, and I feel brain over-loaded. If I forgot to post something that will help in your advice/input, please let me know, and I will respond as promptly as possible.

Thanks so much
