Scotland itinerary, helm me with15 night itinerary

Jump to last reply

So excited, I booked our flights to Scotland! We are two parents with two adult daughters, arriving Edinburgh May 10 and departing Edinburgh May 25, our 37th anniversary!

Now the fun/hard part begins, planning the route and booking accommodation. We are interested in beautiful scenery and history. What we can't do is single carriage roads at a height, ie that gorgeous looking Bealach NA BA. We attempted one or two in France in October, and it wasn't enjoyable for either my husband or me, we are well aware of our limits. Single carriage roads otherwise are fine, as is left side of the road driving.

We are planning on picking up the car at the airport and heading directly to Stirling or Callandar area for three nights, visiting the castle, Inchmahome priory, Trossachs.

Head west, one night either Obsn or Glencoe area, Fort William.

Stop at Glenfinnan and take the ferry to Skye, three nights in Portree. Celebrate my birthday at Three Chimneys.

Head towards Inverness, urquart castle on the way, Culloden battlefield, cawdor castle, Speyside distilleries, three nights.

Head south, possibly to Perth or thereabouts, Balmoral, Glamis, Scone, one night. If time permits try to get to East Neuk.

Drop car, Edinburgh four nights.

I'm eager for suggestions about this route. Too many nights in one spot, too few in another? How can I make it better?

Also, I've laid this out clockwise, would counter clockwise make more sense?

Any advice would be so appreciated! Thanks.
