The Guardian is a great resource for off the beaten track trips, walks, etc in UK and elsewhere. Just Google the guardian.com/travel for great ideas. Just remember that the Guardian is a UK newspaper so costs are in Sterling and European destinations are planned from, usually, London.

A tour with Rabbie’s is a great option if you don’t have a car.:

I did two day tours with them last year and I was happy with the amount of time in the highlands. Honestly, I preferred the coast to the highlands, taking day trips via train to Dunbar and North Berwick.

I have some info. in my trip report:

I actually do have a car as I’m headed to Skye. I am doing a one day Rabbies tour the day before I head to Skye. I just wondered what people thought of this article since the author feels they would have missed so much by having a car.

We did not have an auto last summer. This summer we will have one. I'll report back.

Rabbie's tours were terrific; we took two Highlands tours with them, one to Skye and the other to Dunnottar and Culloden. We otherwise took trains for our travels, including a jaunt from Inverness to Nairn to see the final Highland Games of the season. Scotrail was ... not my favorite railroad company. But the trains were nonetheless a very effective way to get from major place to major place throughout the UK.
