Scotland ideas

Jump to last reply

So I’m starting to look at my summer trip (as a teacher limited to that time frame so I’m stuck with high season)

My plan is to visit my brother in London and get over jet lag spend two weeks in Scotland (with a day trip to Alnwick Castle since I’m a HP fan) and two weeks in Ireland.

I am not renting a car. I am solo and even at home long drives are difficult solo. However I do plan to do small group tours. ( did this in Iceland and it was nice to be with others) I know Rabbies is recommended. I’ve got Ireland figured out for the most part.. I’m still figuring out Scotland as there’s so much and only 2 weeks

I am definitely doing Edinburgh Skye Glencoe the viaduct. Maybe go out to. Highland Game on July 7.I have found two companies that do this.

Now I’m stuck on how to choose.

I could do a tour to outer Hebrides
There is a multi day tour to Orkney
There’s the north coast
There’s applecross?
Is Fife worth it?

Think I’m going to save Glasgow for another trip. Is it better to take the train or fly to Belfast?

My interests.

I have been fascinated with the Celtic culture and the history for a long time. I love castles and am a photographer so amazing scenery and architecture.

Not interested in nightlife and distilleries really. I don’t handle most alcohol well so don’t plan on drinking.

Suggestions on what to research so I can narrow this down a bit more?
