Scotland - Itinerary advice needed

Jump to last reply

Will be traveling to Scotland this June. Whisky and wildlife (nature) is my husbands focus and photography (scenic landscapes and quaint villages) is my focus. We are pretty active, love to hike and emurse into the culture. Right now we have planned the following...

Day 1-2 arrive in Glasgow and drive up to somewhere close to the Whisky trail. Stay 2 nights in that region.
Day 3-4 drive to Skye. Stay in Portree and explore Skye. Three Chimmeny's is a given (we are big foodies).
Day 5 - yet to be determined.
Day 6-8 Islay - Glenegedale House booked. distillery tours booked. Hubby's favorite distilleries are here.
Day 9-11 Edinburgh/Glasgow
Day 12 fly out of Glasgow

Now the questions...
1) is this itinerary to much?
2) recommended base town and accommodations near the Whisky trial area (Speyside). Is Aviemore to far away to use as a base? (There's a hilton there and we could save some money using our points).
3) day 5 recommendations? Mull, Oban, Glencoe?
4) should we try to do Edinburgh or just stay in Glasgow for our last few days?

I have been reading many posts to get to this point and am very appreciative of any suggestions. Thank you in advance!
