Scotland in a week: which bits?

Jump to last reply

I'm quite ashamed that I've never been to Scotland so that looks like the next trip. My companion only has a week and wants to travel around by car from Glasgow.
Looking at the map and Lonely Planet, it seems to be north from Glasgow, along Loch Lomond to Fort William and Glen Coe. Then either north to Inverness and Culloden or west to Skye. South again from Fort William via Oban and a boat trip to Mull/Iona/Staffa and back to Glasgow.
I myself will have more time to spend in Glasgow where I have list of things to see.
Could all you Scottish Experts please comment on this idea. Main restriction is the One Week. It will be end of May.

How bad are the midges? Do they respond to bug spray?
How slow are the roads? We're used to driving on the left.
Do we need to book B&Bs? Suggestions?
Are there whisky distilleries and how do we fit them in and drive too?

And any other advice please.
Thanks.
