Scotland in Feb.

Jump to last reply

We will be ending up a 5 mo. European trip in Scotland in Feb. I understand that the weather certainly won't be ideal, but I'm wondering what we could possibly see in about 3 weeks. It sounds like traveling by train might be best, rather than driving on the opposite side in the snow, but then some of the trips you can sign up for seem to run from Apr.-Oct. I see the Jacobite steam train won't be running then, though other trains are. Here's a tentative list of places I had hoped to see:

Edinburgh
Dunkeld
Aberdeen
Inverness
Loch Ness
Isle of Harris
Skye
Mallaig
Tobermory
Glencoe
Loch Lomond
Glasgow

My husband would prefer to be based somewhere and take day trips, or even do 3-4 days in 4 different spots, but I'm not sure that is feasible.

Would anyone have any guidance as to what we might consider? What we should perhaps skip given the time of year? We will be taking a train from the Lake District in UK, likely to Edinburgh. I appreciate your input.

Susan
