Travel Route 6 days in Scotland:

Jump to last reply

We are planning our trip to Scotland next May, last year we stayed three days in Edinburgh with a day trip to the Highlands. We will be arriving on a Monday night at Edinburgh Airport 8:30pm where we plan to rent a car from the airport for six/seven days.

Tuesday morning we would like to drive to Saint Andrews visiting for several hours then head toward the Isle of Sky. I thought we could drive straight thru yet after reading the forums I would love to make other stops along the way. (Scone Palace, Blair Castle, Loch Rannoch, Loch Ness and Eilean Donan Castle)

Originally we planned Tuesday-Thursday (3) nights in Portree (It would now be just two nights if we stop in route from Saint Andrews) then traveling to Oban for Friday and Saturday (2) nights, visiting Mull, Iona and Staffa Island. Sunday we would travel through Glen Coe down to Sterling Castle, Wallace Monument and the Falkirk Wheel returning to Edinburgh Airport and dropping off car Sunday night.

Where should we spend the Tuesday night on the trip over to Sky and does our itinerary sound too ambitious or does it sound doable.

I had thought about staying in Pitlochry but I would like to be closer to Portree and we are planning on traveling from Pitlochry on A9 then cutting over to A87 via A86.

Thank You
