We have a very short visit to Scotland and London (for a wedding) in July. Here's our itinerary:
Day 1: arrive in Inverness around noon. Relax and maybe do some local sightseeing.
Day 2: An all day trip to Skye run by a tour company, including Loch Ness, Eilean Donan castle, Portree, and several other places.
Day 3: Early train to Edinburgh, arriving around 10:15 am. We need to catch a 5:40 flight to London from Edinburgh.
Day 4, 5, and 6 in London. We must arrive in London on day 3.
Originally, we were going to fly directly to London from Inverness, but later thought we'd stop to see Edinburgh. So the question is should we spend those 6 hours on the Royal Mile including Edinburgh Castle, or would it be better to make a trip to see Sterling Castle, or? We're not much into art galleries or museums. Any and all suggestions are welcome!
