2 nights in Highlands/Scotland

Just fine tuning this part of our itinerary. We have 2 nights spare north of Scotland

Have I got it right for 2 nights. Travelling up from Glasgow.

1 night Glencoe, 1 night Mull then drive to Edinburgh for 2 nights. Ferry from Mull to Oban or should I stay in Oban instead of Mull.

Any recommendations for accommodation. There is 2 of us with car.

Thanks

Wouldn't describe this as "north of Scotland" at all, but more to the point this sounds a bit rushed to me, though not totally impossible. I think you'll be pushed to fit Mull into this due to the ferry times and the long drive back to Edinburgh.

To clarify, you're looking to spend 2 nights in northern Scotland in addition to the above itinerary? Do you have 3 days? When do you want to fit in the extras time, after Mull/Oban or after Edinburgh?

I've been to Skye and Ullapool (and various places between Edinburgh and Ullapool) but that would be a lot of driving from either Mull or Edinburgh. How far north do you want to go?

I 'think' you are just asking about the two nights, and not about Glencoe/Mull plus two additional nights . . . right?

The confusion is because you mention the north and Highlands - and neither Glencoe nor especially Mull/Oban are 'northern' Scotland. And only Glencoe could be considered the highlands.

So please clarify - if you only have 2 nights (which is really just one full day plus a bit) I probably would not try to do Mull but stick to the mainland. Glencoe and the Trossachs and then on to Edinburgh. The Trossachs is gorgeous area between Glencoe and Edinburgh -- rivers, lochs, waterfalls, pretty scenery plus Stirrling/Doune castles would be on the route to Edinburgh.

BUT -- if you actually meant 2 additional nights not counting Glencoe and Oban/Mull, let us know and we can help you more.

We recently spent two nights in Oban, and visited Mull and Iona (well, mostly Iona). I had originally planned to drive on to Glencoe after leaving Oban, but at the last minute, I changed the plan and decided to spend two nights in Oban. I was glad I did, because Iona was our favorite place on the whole trip, and I would have hated to be in a rush to get somewhere else.
