Scotland only or Ireland and Scotland?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are avid hikers and not the "easy" hikes but the long and challenging day ones. We are NOT backpackers, however. We have 2 weeks available next spring and are trying to decide how to best use our time. We are interested in Scotland and perhaps Ireland but are having a terrible time figuring out how to get from one destination to another , knowing, of course, that we cannot get to all or even most in that time period. Here is what interests us in Ireland: Dingle Peninsula, Kilarney National Park, Kerry Way , Skellig Michael, and Bearn Peninsula. Scotland seems to be best to island hop(??) but which ones should we 'hop" to for best sights and hikes and how much time do we lose doing this? I saw a TV program last night with Kenmare, Ireland as the backdrop and the Gap of Dunlough (sp?) Is the Gap walkable or biking necessary to do it? We have read a few things about Scotland that we'd like to to see: the birdlife of Shetland, the Road to the isles (?), Callandish Standing Stones, Cullin Hills, Old Man of Hoy, Ioana, the beaches of South Harris, West Highland Way, Glen Coe...These are all over the map I realize. Knowing of our desire to hike, which of these offer us the best opportunities to hike amid scenery. Also, we'd like to sea kayak although we'd be first timers. Help!
