We were planning on being in Scotland at the end of May and had written the Isle of Skye off the list of possible places, due to no vacancies. However, we have had a major change in our travel plans and now going to be there in mid September.
When we had planned the trip for May, we were slated to go through Glencoe to Oban, then out to Isle of Mull for a few days to also see Iona and Staffa then proceeding to Inverness for a night and down to Pitlochry for another night before our final night in Edinburgh.
We have 8 nights/9 days total and we are booked in Edinburgh for our first night and for our last night.. However, now we are wondering if she should spend only one night in Oban, then proceed to Isle of Mull for 2 nights, then out to Isle of Skye for 2 -3 nights and possibly Inverness before the drive back to Edinburgh. Thoughts?
Should we bi-pass Isle of Mull completely and go for the Isle of Skye for a September trip OR are both doable?
We love castles, great little towns, quaint pubs, scenic landscapes. Okay with nature walks and light hikes but not interested in hiking any mountains.
