Planning A Trip To Scottish Highlands

Looking for recommendations for a 3-day stay in the Scottish Highlands. Arriving and departing from Inverness Airport in September.

Could we narrow down the paramters a bit, please?

Transport? Likes, dislikes? Do you know where you're staying?

We stayed at Bunchrew House, once the home of the Mackenzie-Frazer family. Itis a lovely old home on the edge of the water with lovely grounds and stunning views of the bridge.

If you have a car, try going northwest to Ullapool and beyond... There are some beautiful drives, walks etc. up by Lochinver. Or consider Loch Torridon area - just beautiful... You could also head to the Whiskey Trail in the Grampians... What do you like to do? What are your interests?

We like the Old Mill Highland Lodge at Talladale

The food is very good but is a set menu for dinner. It would not suit a faddy eater.

Haggis Backpackers have quite a good 3 days Isle of Skye Tour which will covers the usual sights in Scottish Highlands including 1 full day in Isle of Skye. Isle of Skye is magical, providing the weather is fine. ;p If your time is tight, I think that's the best bet and its quite affordable too.

I'm new at this so forgot to give some details. We will be renting a car so we can travel freely. We'd like to visit Isle of Skye, Loch Ness, and one other place....take in a couple of castles and enjoy the landscape. We don't know where we are staying, so recommendations would be good. We like B&B's and small Hotels.

Trafford Bank and Moyness House in Inverness are both excellent bed and breakfast places.
We spent a wonderful afternoon at Fort George nr Inverness - it was one of these places I was luke warm about the prospect of visiting (husband wanted to go) but ended up loving. You can often spot dolphins from the ramparts. There's so much to see there. We also found Culloden very atmospheric, and then drove on to the Clava Cairns close by. A google search will bring up details about these stones - we had the site to ourselves, it's free to access and well worth half an hour to wander around them.
