Scottish Castles/Distilleries? Unrealistic Itinerary?

Jump to last reply

I'm headed to Scotland in about a week, and have a few questions on the castles/distilleries. The more guidebooks I read, the more confusing it all seems! Thanks so much for any recommendation! Here are the bits of the itinerary I'm having the most trouble with:

Questions related to St-Andrews-Inverness:
1) My mom and I are driving from St. Andrews (early morning on June 6) and will stay the night in Inverness. On the way to Inverness we'd like to stop at a castle (or two) and maybe a distillery. We've heard Balmoral and Kildrummy are nice from some sources, but others have said there's nothing much to see. Also heard the Scone and Blair castles are lovely. Anyone have a recommendation on which we should make a priority?

2) Knowing we're driving from St. Andrews to Inverness, does anyone have a distillery recommendation that might be along that route?

3) And is it completely unrealistic to see a castle (or two) and a distillery in one day, leaving early am from St. Andrews and arriving later evening in Inverness?

Question related to Portree-Stirling (via Loch Lomond?)
1) A separate day, we're leaving Portree early in the am, and need to make it to Stirling (staying there that night). Need to allow enough time to see Stirling as well...(highly recommended it I hear, but let me know if anyone doesn't agree). So, question is...can we swing seeing Loch Lomond along the way? We know this day will be a longer drive...but we are running short on time. Any suggestions on route?

Any advice on these two different day's itinerary/routes would be greatly appreciated!
