Very Early Planning for Scotland in May, 2012

Jump to last reply

My cousin and I are starting to plan a trip to Scotland, likely May of 2012. We have about two weeks total travel time and would like to fly in and out of London and take 3-4 days there on either end of the trip.
Neither of us is thrilled with driving on the left side of the road. We know the train system is very good for most of what we're interested in, and are willing to take busses, hire a driver, ferry, etc.
One of the "must see" places is Urquhart Castle, as my MIL's maiden name was Urquhart and genealogy has been traced back to that area. Likely the serfs, LOL, rather than the gentry.
We're both interested in churches, museums, natural scenery, history, picturesque villages, etc.
I will have lots of questions. Here's the first:
I have tried to find out about the availability of lockers in train stations, in case we want to arrive early in the day, spend the day sightseeing, and move on to another city for the night. We will likely have to stay in 3-4 different hotels in Scotland to see all we want to see. I've never taken a trip where we have to move so often, usually have one hotel and even if we have an overnight elsewhere we don't give up our base hotel room. I don't think we can do this in Scotland.
Suggestions for how much time to spend where are appreciated.
