Scotland Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Husband and I have been invited on a trip to Scotland with sis and bro-in-law late October/early November for bro-in-law's 60th b'day. They like to visit big cities so she has planned that. We like the rural areas and we are planning that. We fly into Edinburgh for a few days, then 3 days in Aberdeen (with a day trip thrown in-Balmoral) and then rural area and then to Glasgow for a day before returning to Edinburgh. My dilema is we will be leaving Aberdeen on Monday morning and expect to arrive in Glasgow sometime on Wednesday. Is it possible to drive to the Highlands in that short of time without spending the majority of time in the car? Or drive to Oban/Glencoe? Or somewhere else interesting? I have been looking at the map and can't decide on a route. We have been to Ireland several times so we know what the driving could be like in Scotland which we don't mind. Can any of you Fodorites help? Looking forward to replies.
