Scotland with teens thoughts

Jump to last reply

After three full days in Edinburgh and before 6 full days in London, my wife, my 17 year-old son, my 13 year-old daughter, and I would like to spend some time exploring Scotland outside of big cities. We have four days. My thoughts were as follows:

Day one: Drive to Stirling, visit Bannockburn and the castle, and then drive east to St. Andrews. Arrive late, wander the town, and hopefully be there in time to play the Himalayas.

Day two: This is really up in the air and will be driven by the mood of the group. Maybe we knock around St. Andrews if we did not have time the day before. There is talk about visiting the Scone Palace, hiking Ben Vrackie, and visiting the Dalwhinnie distillery. We would end the day in Grantown-on-Spey. If people feel like just getting up and driving, we may head up to Culloden and skip the things between St. Andrews and Grantown.

Day Three: Do Culloden if we did not, and then drive down Loch Ness and Loch Lochy, visit the viaduct at Glenfinnan, and spend the night in the Glencoe to Oban area. Alternatively, we have talked about spending all of the day around the Inverness area. It looks like doing Culloden, Urquhart Castle, and maybe driving along the coast would be as much driving as going from Grantown to Glencoe.

Day Four: Head back towards Stirling with the principal goal for the day to be spent enjoying highland games in a town between Stirling and Edinburgh. Fly out of Edinburgh at 8:00 p.m. on day four. My plan is to be at the airport returning the car at about 6:00. The airport is approximately 30 minutes from the highland games.

Driving is not an issue for us. We live in Texas. It is not unusual for us to drive three hours each way to play a baseball game on a school night. Dinner with friends who live 1.5 hours away is not unheard of. The three hour drive from St. Andrews to the Inverness area will not bother anybody. That being said, I fear I am trying to do too much in the name of keeping people engaged and to provide us with a greater appreciation for the history and people of Scotland. Thoughts? Anything teens would enjoy that I am leaving out for this portion of the trip?

Thanks in advance for the advice and critiques.
