Scotland trip driving questions

Jump to last reply

Hi. Here's my general itinerary, followed by my three questions. I REALLY wish I had more time for this visit. I am trying not to overload this one trip while still including some of the places important to us. Thanks in advance for your help!

Days 1 & 2: Arrive at and see Edinburgh - Castle, Holyrood, whiskey distillery, a bit of the underground city
Days 3 & 4: (staying in Stirling) Stirling Castle, then Doune Castle and the Birds of Prey Trail
Days 5, 6, & 7: (staying in Dunkeld) A quick drive by of Castle Campbell, a day at Blair Castle, and a day jaunt to the East coast for the Montrose National Wildlife Refuge
Day 8: Eilean Donan??
Days 9, 10, & 11: (staying in Ballachulish) Ardnamore, day roundtrip via train Fort William to Mallaig, local hiking, Castle Stalker
Day 12: (staying in South Queensferry) Linlithgow & South Queensferry
Day 13: fly out of EDI

Q!: All lodging is set except for Day 8. Before I lock in a B&B along the route for this night, my main concern here is whether we'll have enough time to drive from Dunkeld to Eilean Donan and spend a couple of hours at the Castle before it closes. I would really like to see Eilean Donan and would hate to cut it from the trip. About how long should it take us to drive from Dunkeld up the A9 to the A889 to the A86 to the A82 to the A87 and over to Eilean Donan Castle? Is that the fastest route from Dunkeld to Dornie? Also, about how long will it take us to drive from Eilean Donan to Ballachulish the next morning?

Q2. My main concern with the trip in general is driving on the other side of the road! Does anyone have tips or advice for driving in the UK for the first time?

Q3: Of the towns along our route, which are good places to look for local craft stores for small, inexpensive gifts for family members?

Again, many thanks for any info!
