Scotland trip needs midway stop suggestions

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all for your advice planning our trip. I'm good on the first part, with a week based in Edinburgh with two day trips (1 = Stirling by train; 2 = Rosslyn/Borders w/ Rabbie's). So now it's on to the next phase with a rental car.

So now I need some input on the next two days -- where to break the tour for two overnights and where to stay... Would love to stay two nights in one central location, but not sure this is feasible. And would like to throw in one distillery (Janisj - you suggested Glenfiddich for a good tour, though not p'haps the best whisky!. We'll hit Tallisker on Skye too. We're not big drinkers, but hey: it's Scotland!!!!!)

Here's what we're thinking now:

Check out of Edinburgh, pick up rental car (at airport?) >
Drummond Castle Gardens >
(Glamis?)
Dunnottar>
Drum>
Crathes>
Craigevar>
(Fraser?)>
(Glenfiddich Distillery?>
Culloden/Clava Cairns >

Next leg of trip will be down Loch Ness headed to Skye.

We won't do full tours, some may be photo ops or tea/lunch stops. (Or if you say TOO MUCH we'll start editing.)

Thanks all!
