TRIP PLAN COMMING TOGETHER--BUT QUESTIONS REMAIN

Jump to last reply

The Plan is coming together for our 1 month UK visit in September/October. This is what I've come up with so far, but first something about us. Both in our 60's and have traveled extensively in the US in our RV. We've made two , 2 month trips to Western Europe, but not to the UK. We like to stay exclusivly in B&B's, but have made exceptions a couple of times. We are on a budget and would prefer not to spend more than 70 BP a night. We might bend this some if it's a really nice place. (we have busted the budget for London) We really not into art, but enjoy the beauty of old churches, and plan on taking a few castles. Not too many though as the Mrs gets castled out if you know what I mean. We spend most of our travels in the outdoors and plan on taking walks in the countryside on most of our stops in the UK. We like the architecture of villages and towns. (just are not the same here in the states) In the past our trips have avoided large cities, but this time we're including London and Paris for a week each.

London....6 nights (can't change this)

Rent Car in London

North York Moors.....3 nights
Northumberland.......4 nights with day trip to Edinburgh. (via train)
I'm pretty well up on the Moors and Northumberland and pretty firm on where to stay and for how long. (Moors already booked)

Here's were the questions start.
Fort William ..... 4 nights??? I want to climb Ben Nevis if the weather cooperates. I've read that Fort William it self it not much to rave about. Is this true? Should we stay somewhere else where there is more to see or stay fewer nights in FW. We hadn't planned on Isle of Skye but should we include it for a couple of days.

Lake District.....4 nights
North Wales......4 nights

Plan to climb MT Snowden

Cotswolds.......4 nights

London......1 night near St Pancras for the Eurostar to Paris

This leaves 2 extra nights for some flexibility.
I'm I missing something? Other places we should consider as not to be missed? I was looking at the small village of Kirkcudbright. Seems like and interesting area. Is it worth a night or two?

I really appreciate the help so far, and since you folks are so helpful, I'll keep asking questions
