We have five or six full days in Scotland next Spring (late April) and would appreciate and enjoy hearing thoughts on an itinerary…we will be traveling from London by train into either Glasgow or Edinburgh. We have heard that driving a car there can be stressful (Is this true?) and are not interested in a multi-day, organized group tour.
Questions we have:
1. Is it possible to do day trips with local tour guides from both Edinburgh and Glasgow—we were thinking of staying a few days in each of these locations as our home bases.
2. We have never been to Scotland and enjoy castles, HP and The Highlands (clearly we would not be able to see ALL of it—but seeing the Highland Cow is, ironically, on our list). 😊
3. We are empty-nesters that can easily walk 4-5 miles a day but would prefer not to spend all day on our feet.
