My wife and I are planning a 14 day trip through Scotland and Ireland in July 2020. Any help to fine-tune our itinerary would be GREATLY appreciated.
We were thinking of doing an even split with 6 days in Scotland and 6 days in Ireland, but are open to changing this.
For the Scottish part of the trip, the highlands are a high priority. Both of us have been to Edinburgh before so we will most likely only spend one night on arrival and then head out further afield. The further afield is where we are struggling a bit. Our current Scottish itinerary is as follows:
1 night Edinburgh
2 nights Inverness
2 nights Portree, Ilse of Skye (Is this too far for a 6 day trip?)
1 night somewhere?? Glencoe?
Any advice/ suggested changes would be very much appreciated!
We are nature-loving people and would like to have time enjoying the scenery that these countries have to offer, whilst at the same time trying some good local food and whiskey. If you have any good advice regarding short hikes, restaurants/ foods that should be tried, distilleries please share.
