Scotland Itinerary May 12-May 22, 2013

Jump to last reply

Please critique my itinerary for our visit to Scotland this spring. We will be arriving in Edinburgh Sunday night (flight from Norway) where we will pick up our rental car and spend the 1st night at a Hotel near the airport just off the M9. (3 miles from airport)

1 Night Edinburgh Airport: Monday morning we will travel to Stirling Castle arriving by 9:30am opening, we will visit the castle then travel on A84 toward Callander stopping at Bracklinn Falls. From Callander we will continue on A84 to A85 stopping at Kilchurn Castle then on to Oban and check in to our B&B for the next two nights.

2 Nights in Oban: Tuesday we have a Three Island Tour scheduled for Mull, Iona and Staffa Islands this will take a full day.

Wednesday morning check-out of B&B travel from Oban via Glencoe, Fort William and Mallaig/Armadale via Calmac Car ferry (This will take all day) to Portree, Isle of Sky. Check-in to B&B for the next three nights.

3 Nights Portree Isle of Sky: Thursday and Friday enjoy Sky, we have several driving/hiking tours lined up and will take advantage of the longer daylight hours during our stay.

Saturday morning depart Skye via the bridge stopping at Eilean Donan Castle heading south through Fort Augusta stopping for the night at Pitlochry, Perth or Dundee. I’m not sure about this night as I haven’t decided rather we should visit St Andrews Sunday morning or drive on to Edinburgh Airport Saturday night.

Saint Andrews-Edinburgh-Sunday: Visit the Old Course at Saint Andrews and tour the town. After visiting the area we will drive to the airport and return the rental car and then catch the Airlink Bus into the City Center checking into our hotel.

3 Night Edinburgh:
We visited Edinburgh in 2011 and just want to revisit some of the sites and see a few new items like the Pandas at Edinburgh Zoo. We will depart late Wednesday night on the Caledonian sleeper to London. So we will have three full days in Edinburgh.
