Scotland: Where to next?

Jump to last reply

We had such a great trip to Scotland this summer, I think we'll go back ahead next year. Family of 4 (DD14, DS11) driving from Derby. Week long holiday next May/June during the bank holiday and half term week. Figure 6 full days of touring with 8 days total including travel time.

This past trip, we saw my top tier items with 3 days in Callander, 3 in Skye and 2 around Loch Ness. We briefly saw Glencoe and Glenfinnan enroute to Skye. We really enjoyed the combination of short walks and historical sites and would be looking for the same (if we can get a week of sunshine like we did, all the better). Last trip for info:

Now what?

Geographically, it looks like a few combinations could be
a) Fife + Castle Trail
b) Glencoe / Oban / "island" (Arran or Mull/Iona) or Dumfries & Galloway
c) NW (Plockton/Applecross/Ullapool etc.) though a bit far

So, any suggested itineraries and base camps? Thanks.
