Visiting Scotland, Cotswolds, Brittany

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

Now that my itinerary for Sept-Oct, 2012 is almost complete, I am starting my plans for 2013.

I'm thinking of flying ATL--> LHR--> Aberdeen and driving to Inverness to begin the trip.
(There is a flight ATL--> LGW--> Inverness but it has too many changes)

From Inverness, we drive South to the Cotswalds and then to Portsmouth, where we drop the car and take the overnight ferry to Caen.

We will have about 2 weeks in which to do this.

Pick up a car in Caen and spend about 4 nights in Normandy and 5 nights in Brittany before heading to Paris for about 4 nights and then flying home.

Questions:
Best time to start: Late August, Early Sept, Late Sept?
Should we stay awhile in Aberdeen?
What can we expect from the Brittany Ferries service?
Am I leaving the right amount of time for Normandy and Brittany?

All (well, nearly all) comments and suggestions welcome.

((I))
