Scottish Higlands with a baby, need help

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be traveling to Scotland in late May with our 14 month old. We will be staying 7 nights (arriving EDI on Sat morning leaving the following Sun at noon). We plan on staying in Edinburgh for 3 nights most likely,probably on the back end. I will be using Hilton points to stay at the Caledonian. Where we need help is for the Highlands portion. Since we will have the baby, we think it will be easier to use one place in the highlands as a base, and take day trips from there. (we will rent a car) We definitely want to see castles (Dunnottar and Eilean Donan), Loch Ness and Urqhuart and as many other "must see's" as is feasible. While we want to see a lot, we also want to enjoy ourselves and the surroundings and not try to overdo it.

We are thinking somewhere in the Inverness area would be a good base. Probably not in the city though. Glengarry caslte looks promising. Seems pretty central and also seems like a beautiful place to just hang out for a day if the baby (or one of us) needs a break. The Maryculter House looks nice too, but I think it might be too long of a drive to get to the West Coast sites. A self catering option would be fine if we could find the right place. I think it would be more convenient, but it would be nice to have some things to do on the property (like how some of the castles have self catering cottages on the grounds).

Please let me know your thoughts, and also other places to see once we are there. There is so much information in the guidebooks that it can be difficult to determine what to actually see.

Thanks,
