Scotland on a farm by horse?

Jump to last reply

Hello all! My husband and I are going to Scotland in May 2015. Now, I'm not entirely sure if what we are trying to do is actually do-able and I cannot seem to find the information I need on generic websites.

My husband would love to view Scotland on horseback. He also wants to explore the culture (including bagpipes, kilts, etc.). I would love to visit scenic areas, visit museums, as well as exploring some castles.

What I was considering is staying at a B&B, possibly a farm that is close to the city but has access to horseback riding (unguided preferred as we are both experienced riders). Another option we would love is staying in a castle with archery, horseback riding, and other outdoor amenities. So essentially the question is, what would be the best way to do all of this and do you have any recommendations based on experience?

Scotland is just so big it's overwhelming! We have never traveled outside of the states so I want to make sure everything is perfect. We plan on spending about 4 days in Scotland then flying to Paris and ending in Italy (Rome, Florence, and Venice). I am planning Scotland first then I will move onto the rest.

Thank you in advanced for your help!
