SCOTLAND - Itinerary, Lodging Help Please

Jump to last reply

Can anyone answer a few questions and help by looking over some possible itineraries?

- if you could visit Skye, Inverness or Loch Ness area, which would you chose and why?
- what activities/sights characterize these three different areas?
- how many nights stay in Glencoe is sufficient to enjoy the sites without rushing?
- how many nights in Edinburgh suffice for a good introduction to the city?

We have some possible itineraries - which looks best, and why?

- Glencoe 4 nights, Loch Ness/Inverness 4 nights, Edinburgh 2
- Glencoe 3 nights, Loch Ness/Inverness 4 nights, Edinburgh 3
- Glencoe 4 nights, Loch Ness/Inverness 3 nights, Edinburgh 3

Perhaps you can recommend a better combination of nights for these above areas?

Or - we could do the following:

- Glencoe 4 nights, Skye 4 nights, Edinburgh 2
- Glencoe 3 nights, Skye 4 nights, Edinburgh 3
- Glencoe 4 nights, Skye 3 nights, Edinburgh 3
- Glencoe 4 nights, Skye 2 nights, Mull 1 night, Edinburgh 3 nights

This is a choice of Loch Ness/Inverness versus Skye in the end - travelling as a family with young teens - the best accommodations for us are in Loch Ness/Inverness but we keep hearing wonderful things about Skye and how it is one of the nicest places in the country.

Which makes the best addition to a once in a lifetime trip to Scotland with 10 nights open? Skye or Loch Ness? And which itinerary looks the best (and why)?

Thanks!
