Deciding between Cornwall and Scotland - Can we do both?

Jump to last reply

I haven't posted here in awhile, but have received great feedback in the past and look forward to more expert opinions. Mom and I are in the early stages of planning our next trip to the UK, and Cornwall and Scotland are both on the wish list. We've been to England on two other trips and covered a lot of ground between London, Bath, Winchester, Salisbury, Chester, Cambridge and Oxford, with lots of countryside in between. The reality is that we may only make one more trip to Britain together, and the two areas on our wish list are about as far apart as it gets, so I'm trying to decide if we should settle on one or attempt to do a little of both.

We'll probably have about 16 nights and are open to all forms of transportation, but I want to limit walking/dragging suitcases for Mom's sake. If we focus only on Cornwall, we would either drive and spend a couple of nights in Dorset or Devon on the way, or take the train and hire a car when we get to Cornwall. Mom is pretty well set on seeing Cornwall, so if it's only one destination, Cornwall it is.

However.... I have an idea that I want to run by forum members. I'm thinking we could fly into Edinburgh, spend 3 nights there before taking a Rabbie's tour of either Mull/Iona/W. Highlands or Skye/W. Highlands (3 nights), then spend a last night in Edinburgh before flying to Exeter, then spend 7-8 nights in Cornwall before flying out of London. How does this sound? I know it isn't the ideal (3 months in the UK sounds ideal to me!), but would it be enough to see a little of both areas and still not run ourselves ragged?
