Would love some help finalizing our plans for our trip to Scotland this summer! We (Husband, two 'children' ages 17 and 20, and myself) will arrive in Edinburgh the morning of July 27. We will get a car as we depart Edinburgh. Here are our lodging locations with amount of nights at each one. We would love suggestions for "must sees" as well as restaurant recommendations. In particular, the time we are basing ourselves in Pitlochry (we plan to take multiple day trips during our stay there).
A little background on us: We love to travel, are adventurous and thoroughly enjoy getting to know the locals wherever we go. We plan to explore the castles, scenery, museums, my son and husband plan to golf a couple of times, food and spirits and "go where the locals go" :-)
July 27-29 Edinburgh
July 29-30 Cupar (exploring St Andrews)
July 30-Aug. 3 Pitlochry
Aug. 3-4 Loch Ness
Aug. 4-6 Portree
Aug. 6-8 Bishopton
Aug. 8 fly home out of Glascow
We are very excited and appreciate any input very much!
