Scotland in June - a few random questions

Jump to last reply

Well, you've all been a great help in setting up our trip the last two weeks of June. We start in Edinburgh for 3 nights, go to Callander for 2 nights, Glencoe for 1 night, Portree for 3 nights, Nairn for 2 nights, and Perth for 1 night, before flying home.

So random questions:
1) We stay in B&Bs everywhere but Edinburgh. The hotel breakfast is astonishingly expensive, so we'll go out for breakfast. Our hotel, Frasier Suites is on the Royal Mile. Can I safely assume we'll have no problem finding a nice café for breakfast? Any suggestions?
2) Is dress, in general, relatively casual? With so many outdoors activities, most of what I'm packing is layers of casual clothing. But what about Edinburgh? I guess I can pack my standard black pants and they always pass everywhere.
3) What's the best way to figure out the most interesting way to drive from Stop A to Stop B? We want the scenic route, stopping at interesting sites. I often use Via Michelin, but are there better Scotland specific tools?
4) Is there anything I need to book before I leave home? Special restaurants? The ferry to Skye?

I told you it was a random list! Thanks, as always, for your help.

Alice
