Hi to all and thanks for any responses--
On my 7th or 8th extensive UK visit (wife's 3rd), we'll be based near Cornhill-on- Tweed in a self- catering accommodation for our first segment. Rather than post all our POTENTIAL ONLY inclusions/draft days in one lengthy post, I'm dividing them into four separate forum segments.
Below is the first of two. Each will be clearly excessive in ambition and seeks relief aimed at better and more realistic editing suggestions for a reasonable day.
Any and all whittling and/or potentially better alternatives are requested. Please stay within the given day geographic parameters formula as we've not shown other day itinerary options physically beyond. All vehicle days begin and end in our Cornhill on Tweed base. The first is perhaps our most excessively ambitious in need of editing despite a ten-hour day within the Edinburgh area itself. (Later dinner return than others which will normally be hopefully before 5:30 p.m).
Day 1 Potential itinerary inclusion/exclusions in and around Edinburgh -a return visit for me & fist for wife:
National Trust (have passes) Gladstone'sLand/ GeorgianHouse/taste of Edinburgh.Center/ NewhailesEst./ Nat.Trust InvereskGarden
108 miles return totals -- drive time LOW estimate 31/4 hours
Day 2 Potential Itinerary Inclusions: Etal&EH castle /Ford/ Bamburgh & Eng. Heritage (have passes) castle ruins / Beadnell/ Seahouses/ Dunstanburgh Castle ruins EH & Craster/ Kirknewton Scotland
Please note: Two obvious gems within easy drive range excluded today are Wooler and Holy Island planned in another later day's itinerary)
88 mi Drive Time Low Estimate 2 3/4 hours
Any and all red pencil exclusions, replacements, suggestions within, etc. will be carefully studied and much appreciated for the feedback. All good things----
