Scotland/UK itinerary

Jump to last reply

I will arrive Inverness by flight on 9/4/2017 around 1pm from London and plan to drive to Drumnadrochit for an overnight stay. I plan to drive the next morning to Eilean Donan Castle, cross the Skye bridge and take the ferry at Armadale to Mallaig. I intend to stay overnight at Fort William. I am not sure whether this is doable in a day as I also plan to stop at Glenfinnan on my way from Mallaig to Fort William. The next morning, I will drive to Edinburgh for a 2 nights stay. After 2 nights in Edinburgh, I will leave Edinburgh and spent a night at Keswick before heading to Manchester. I plan to stop at York but again it depends on the time I spent in the Lake District.

So the itinerary looks like this:

Day 1- Arrive Inverness, overnight at Drumnadrochit
Day 2- Drumnadrochit-Eilean Donan Castle-Armadale-Mallaig-Glenfinnan-Fort William
Day 3-Fort William-Edinburgh
Day 4-Edinburgh
Day 5-Edinburgh-Keswick
Day 5-Keswick-York-Manchester.
Day 6-Manchester-London by train

I am just not sure whether this itinerary is even possible as I really cant gauge the time needed for each destination and driving conditions. Hence the request for any assistance. I may be able to add another day to the above itinerary but would have to cut short my days in London. I am planning to spend 6 nights in London before heading back to Australia.

My other option is to fly into Edinburgh and make my way to Inverness and continue with Day 2 itinerary. One of my friends suggested that I fly to Edinburgh and then drive from Edinburgh to Inverness and not fly directly from London to Inverness.

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
