Scotland in 4-5 Days?

Jump to last reply

I'll be honeymooning in Ireland and Scotland from October 17-October 29. We were planning on spending about a week in Ireland and remainder of the time in Scotland. We are trying to avoid renting a car, and for the amount of time we'll be there it doesn't seem we'll save much, if any, buying a railpass.

If we take the ferry to Scotland from Ireland...where should we go from there? We're flying out of Edinburgh on the 29th. We're interested in seeing castles and natural beauty, love to hike, bike, etc. However, we would also like to be in a decent sized town to offer options for dining, drinking, music, etc. in the evenings. We'd also be interested in any festivals or sporting events.

We've considered going to Glasgow then Aberdeen and finally Edinburgh. Are those interesting places? There seems to be no middle ground between big city and vacant land in Scotland! We're trying to stray from the ultra touristy areas - but again, looking for more entertainment than countryside might offer in the evenings! Any advice would help tremendously!
