3 Weeks in England, Scotland, and Ireland - Itinerary Review

Jump to last reply

Husband and I are planning a 3 week trip to England, Scotland, and Ireland for summer of 2017 (we have availability to travel in late July, August, or September). We initially thought we would do a 3 week self-drive tour of England and Scotland (I posted previously about this). However, after much thought, discussion and feedback, we've decided to decrease the amount of self drive time. We've also decided that we cannot leave Ireland off our UK itinierary in the event that we do not have the chance to visit the UK again.
