Starting to plan my next trip overseas. I am into landscape photography but I absolutely will not feel comfortable renting a car and driving around Scotland. It would just make me too anxious plus I do like to enjoy wine on vacation. That means no driving for me ;-). I also do not like "tours" and taxis are too expensive. I prefer to get around via train and bus. Planes are OK as long as they are not too expensive. Ferries are fine as long as the journey is not too long and the ferry dock can be traveled to via public trans.
I have seen some GORGEOUS photos of places in Scotland that include mountains and lakes (lochs?) and beaches. Just spectacular! I am a bit over stimulated so hoping you people can help me focus. What are some great locations a person can get to easily and be enamored by the gorgeous vistas? I would be traveling in April or Summer 2016 but Summer is more likely. Thank you in advance.
