Trip ideas for Scotland/Lake District/Wales in spring?

Jump to last reply

My travel partner and I (mid-40s and mid-60s in age) are traveling into Glasgow on April 26 and out on May 5, and our plans for a rented flat in the Lake District at Bowness on Windermere fell through. Other than some interest in seeing Edinburgh and the cathedral at Coventry (with no time-bound plans), we now have no plans, and are seeking suggestions for things to do and places to see. We love to walk and hike places with nice views (up to 3 miles/4 km for the mid-60s person, longer for the mid-40s person), don't love shopping so much, and while a nice museum is a great choice for a rainy day, we would prefer to spend the week outdoors in places with good options. We will have a rented car (suggestions for renting one are welcome!) and are willing to travel around a bit through Scotland, Northern England and Wales, but have already seen London and Dover, so we would prefer to stay north. Central location with day trips or a few locations with a few days each would be preferable to bouncing around . Please post suggestions, and thanks in advance for your ideas! :)
