Planning our trip has started early. I think because we planned our trip to Germany and it changed like 6 times before we booked everything. SO! We are going to do the same and I want to lay out our plans here and let everyone pick it apart a little and give me some feedback.
My 5-year-old. ( she will be 5 when we go )
POSSIBLY My sister in-law
We live in Pittsburgh are looking into taking WOW Air to Edinburgh. (Mainly because the price is triple for every other airline). But that is still up in the air.
Edinburgh 5 days With 3 day Train pass
Day 1: Fly into Edinburgh and explore (as per Rick Jet lag hates fresh air and sun.. OOO boy is that true.)
Day 2: Edinburgh
Day 3: Pick up train and explore Glasgow and Falkirk
Day 4: Pick up train and explore Sterling and another city
Day 5: Pick up train and explore St Andrews and another city
Day 6: Pick up a car and sightsee from Edinburgh to Inverness. (Stopping in places like Perth, Pitlochry, and Cairngorms National Park)
Day 7: Inverness
Day 8: Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh (Sightseeing along the way. Staying in Locklash because the price of staying on Sky is out of this world and don't want to add more drive time.)
Day 9: Kyle of Lochalsh (Day trip and drive up the Isle of Skye and see as much as we can in one day)
Day 10: Kyle of Lochalsh to Glencoe (Sightsee along the way stopping as little or as much as we want)
Day 11: Glencoe (Driving down to Oban to do the Isle of Mull, Iona, and Staffa.)
Day 12: Glencoe to Edinburgh drop the car and fly out later in the afternoon.
This trip is evolving and will be right up to the day of the trip I'm sure. But this seems like it might work just want to toss it out there any ideas or questions.. fire away. lol
