Scotland Highlands Help

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are thinking of spending a long week in Scotland in September - hopefully 9-10 days. I'm struggling a bit with which area to visit. Hoping JanisJ, Gardyloo and others might have some opinions.

1. Interested in coastal or island areas with water views, natural beauty, hiking, possibly golf and fishing, whisky, good dining. Would like a relaxing romantic trip versus checklist of places. Castles not necessary - unlikely to tour any.

2. Not interested in moving about a lot or long driving days except perhaps at the beginning and end. Or one long driving day in the middle. We will be flying out of JFK so I'm assuming to Edinburgh but we've spent time there already and want to head to country right away.

3. Would prefer one - three "Country House Hotels" as a base with activities nearby rather than moving around to numerous smaller places.

4. Will "stalking" be an issue for September in terms of limiting hiking?

Things that look interesting so far: Mull, Eriskay, Skye.

Hope I'm not sounding too naive, and thank you in advance for suggestions.
