I am reposting since I got so few answers. My grown daughter and I are taking a "girls" trip this Sept 4, 2012, arriving by train in Edinburgh from London and flying back from Inverness to London on Sept. 14. We have booked accomodations in Edinburgh for 3 nights. I am planning on renting a car and leaving Edinburgh the morning of Sept. 7. This is itinerary I have planned and just wondering if the drives/plans are doable and questions about overnights. We are following some of our clan history ,visiting castles and seeing the beautiful landscape.I know the roads can be slow at times, especially in rain.
Here is the plan:
Sept 7-pick up car at airport and drive to Roslyn and Melrose Abbey up to Linlithgow with overnight at Airth Castle( ancestor once owned it).
Sept 8-Depart to Stirling and see castle,Bannockburn,Wallace Monument, and possible Doune Castle. Depart for Dumferline to see the Abbey and then on to Perth. Overnight in Perth.
Sept 9-See Scone Palace and then drive to Glencoe and Glenfinnan. Overnight in Glencoe or Fort William or continue to Skye?
Sept 10-Fort William to Eilean Donan castle and Kyle of Lochalsh? Maybe Overnight on Skye or back to Loch Ness? Overnight in Loch Ness area for 3 nights? Visiting Culloden Battlefield,Urquart Castle,Loch Ness and sites around Inverness ( Fort George,Cawdor Castle) .
Sept. 14-depart for Inverness airport to return rental car and for flight back to London.
Is there room for a day in Portree and Skye or should we just stay in the Loch Ness area and continue northward?
