My husband and I have rented a car for our Scotland trip and plan to visit some Inner Hebrides isles. We are traveling in the beginning of April and will drive from Eidenburgh to a logical destination to make the most of this part of our trip. I’ve read RS Oban and three island excursion but wonder about other approaches with the use of our car, although we are open to all ideas. Will spend two nights and have two full days available for this part of our trip. We’ve read recommendations for a night on Isle of Mull and visits to Staffa (weather permitting) and no vehicles allowed on Iona. Our interests lie with seeing the landscapes, sampling the food, visiting SOME “shouldn’t be missed sights,” not rushing or over planning and not over spending on lodging.
Suggestions for visiting these isles with the consideration of having a car? We are not opposed to tours for the informational component, but don’t want to come away wishing we had more time in one location and less time at others.
Feel free to provide any suggestions. We also want to make reservations for any tours and lodging as soon as possible. (Isle of Skye will not be on our itinerary if that is helpful to know.)
