My husband and I are planning approx. five days in Scotland this July as part of a larger Europe trip. We are thinking of 1-2 days in Edinburgh and then renting a car and heading west. My thoughts were to spend two nights in Oban as a base to explore the Glencoe region and Isle of Mull. We are not sure what to do with our extra day. Spend an extra night in either Edinburgh or Oban and do a day trip somewhere? A day in Glasgow or somewhere else in the west? Forget the western region all together and spend three days somewhere else? Any and all suggestions are welcome.
We are in our early 30s with no kids. We enjoy good food, good drinks, and a good day outdoors when we travel. Would like to do some touristry stuff (visit a castle, museum, distillery, etc...) but definitely more into the local culture aspect of traveling and would like to avoid major tourist traps, especially since we're traveling around peak tourist season. Thanks for the help!
