Small towns in Scotland

Jump to last reply

We will be spending the last two weeks of September in Scotland, and just starting to outline an itinerary. Flights into and out of Glasgow have already been booked. A few questions that we could use help with:

1. We will have 15 nights total in the country, and plan to finish the trip with 3 -4 nights in Glasgow. Realizing that Glasgow and Edinburgh are only a one hour train ride apart, we are undecided as to whether to tack on an extra night to Glasgow and day trip to Edinburgh, or to spend a couple of nights in the capital. Opinions on this?

2. We like to spend the majority of our time in smaller towns in the countryside, and will have a car for this portion of the trip. We'd like to limit the number of hotels to two, or three at the most, centrally located in regions where we would drive to other interesting small towns, sightsee in the mountains, and just relax. We prefer to base in a town rather than being remote in the country so that we can walk to dinner and have a few drinks without worrying about driving.

We are two couples in our early 60's, able to do a fair amount of walking but not strenuous hiking. We definitely want to spend some time in the Highlands, lakes and beautiful countryside, but we won't be doing any mountaineering. We like to see one or two sites a day - castles, museums, local events, etc...- with leisurely lunches and a moderate pace. We like small hotels and B&Bs, and we enjoy casual dinners at places serving local food - not high-end foodies.

Any help narrowing down the best areas to base in would be appreciated.
