Thanks to you all for some helpful comments, I have an itinerary and lodging secured. I would appreciate any tips regarding worthwhile side stops, sites not miss, etc. At this point everything but the flights can be cancelled, but I think I am pretty happy with what I have. This will be mid-October. We aren't really big city people and are not really interested in nightlife, although a pub with locals would be fun. We enjoy beautiful scenery, but we won't really be hiking. Nice walks are a consideration, though. Any other distilleries that we should definitely fit in?
Day 1 Arrive Edinburgh around 2:30 pm and head to our hotel (Le Monde Hotel)
Day 2 Enjoy Edinburgh including the Castle, hopefully National Museum, Holyrood Palace. I have reserved afternoon Tea at Holyrood Cafe.
Day 3 pick up car from Arthur Clarke airport location and drive to Inverary to visit the Castle (my grandmother was a Campbell). From there complete the drive to Oban and check in to our hotel Perle Oban Hotel.
Day 4 Enjoy Oban including a wildlife tour (boat) and a distillery tour as well as enjoy the town, maybe do shopping for some tweed.
Day 5 Leave Oban and stop at Glencoe to explore on our way to Dingwall. (Staying at Tulloch Castle since I am a Davidson)
Day 6 explore the area including Culloden, Clava Cairns, etc.
Day 7 Leave Dingwall and drive to St. Andrews, stopping at Pitlochry along the way. Check in to our hotel The Arran.
Day 8 I have already booked St. Andrews History walking tour including the old course in the morning. Late afternoon, head back to Edinburgh airport to drop the car and check in to Hampton by Hilton at the Airport.
Day 9 Flight leaves Edinburgh at 6 a.m. (How early should we plan on getting there for an international flight? We fly from EDI to Frankfurt, then on to the US).
Appreciate any comments and my family surnames also include Ramsey (maternal grandfather), Brooks (maternal great grandfather), Stephenson (paternal grandmother) so any suggestions related to those clans that I can visit with this itinerary?
