Help with 11 Day Trip to Scotland - May 2014

Jump to last reply

My wife and I (both early 60's like food, beer, wine, gardening and history) are going to Scotland this coming May and I need to confirm I have a decent schedule. Also i need to know if we should take the bridge to Skye and return via ferry. Is the ferry too complicated to schedule so you don't have to waste time. Also would like suggestions on what not to miss on Skye.

Here is the schedule:

May 20 - Depart US

May 21 - Arrive Edinburgh early morning - Three nights staying in an apartment near Hanover & Princess Streets. Dinner -Wedgwood Restaurant , Music Doric Tavern

May 22- Purchase Lothian 2-day bus pass , Edinburgh Castle - Old Town, Dinner -The Grain Store

May 23- Visit Royal Botanical Gardens, Explore Edinburgh -( Any other Suggestions) Dinner - Castle Terrace Restaurant

May 24- Rent Car -8 Days (Celtic Legends), Drive to St. Andrews, tour castle and do Hawk Walk in Cupar. Lodging - Six Murray Park, Dinner - Forgan's restaurant.

May 25 - Drive to Blair Castle and watch the Atholl Highland Games
Continue to Fort Augustus - Lodging two nights- Abbey Church Highland Club Scotland

Any restaurant suggestions in Inverness or Fort Augustus?

May 26 - Inverness , Jacobite Loch Ness Cruise, Urguhart Castle, Corrimony Chambered Cairn

May 27 - Eilean Castle on the way to Skye. Two nights lodging at The Spoons

Any other suggestions for stops on the way or Restaurant suggestions in Portree?

May 28 - Hiking, Dunvegan Castle, Claigan Beach,and explore the island. Dinner at the Three Chimneys.

May 29.
May main question is should we go to Inveraray Castle via the ferry or retrace our route and go back by the bridge?

Inveraray Castle ( my wife is a Campbell) other stops? Three nights lodging at The Auchenheglish Lodges in Arden.

Dinner suggestions?

May 30 - Day trips to Stirling Castle, Glengoyne Distillery ( Whiskey & Chocolate Tour) and hike in Loch Lomond area.

May 31 - Explore area, British Pipe Band Championship in Bathgate, farewell dinner at Martin Wishart at the Cameron House.

June 1- Mid-morning return rental car an
d depart from Glascow back to the US.

Any suggestions on side trips and additional events, restaurants would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to all.
