It's an unintended pun, considering all the waterways untangled a crosses the Scottish landscape. We will begin our travels throughout Great Britain and Ireland, landing at Shannon Airport, lodging in Galway, Limerick, and Kenmare, culminating in Dublin. Then we will fly to Edinburgh, train to Stirling and there rent s car so we can drive to the Isle of Mull by way of Inverarary. Our quest is, 2nights in each or 1 in Inveraray and 3 on Mull?
"We will begin our travels throughout Great Britain landing at Shannon Airport" - unless you want to annoy the Irish, I suggest you edit that sentence.
Great Britain is the name of an island. Ireland is a different island. Last time I checked a map, Shannon Airport, Galway, Limerick, Kenmare and Dublin were all on the island if Ireland. Edinburgh and Stirling are on the island of Great Britain.
Sorry I can't answer your actual question though.
Personally I don't care for 2 night stands simply because it is real only one day. But you should know that given that you have been hanging around this site for sometime. Recognize that you are doing a lot of travel in relation to seeing anything.
I think Inveraray is definitely worth 2 nights -- or more, with a rental car. There's the town itself, the jail, the castle and related walking paths on the castle grounds, Auchindrain Township outdoor museum, Argyll Adventure horseback riding, and more. I can highly recommend Brambles for lodging and daytime eats, and the George Hotel for dinner and pub atmosphere.
Now I need help correcting the error of my ways. My great grandmother is not here to correct me, so thanks to a contributor to this forum, I have been summarily educated about the distinction of Ireland from Britain. Wish I could delete my inquiry. Need schooling on that, too.
