I would appreciate comments on my 11day draft itinerary and questions I have listed. We are coming in May and arriving in Glasgow as it is the most economical flight from Washington, Dulles. We could probably add a day to the trip if necessary.
- Arrive Glasgow - 1 night
- Drive to Oban or Glencoe. (Which is better town to stay overnight?) - 1 night
- Skye - 3 nights (too long?) We love a rest stop in the middle of gogogo.
- Inverness - 2 nights
- St. Andrews - 1 night
- Edinburgh - 2 nights
- Glasgow - late in the day - 1 night - depart following morning
Sights we plan to see besides the beautiful countryside (our major focus) are:
Glasgow: Mackintosh home/architecture, Hadid's Riverside Museum, Glasgow cathedral On way
to Oban/Glencoe see Loch Lommond
Oban: Craig's Tower, seaside area
Skye: On way stop in Glenfinnan & Ft. William. Dunvegan castle, standing stones
Inverness: Culloden, Clava Cairns, Cawdor Castle, suspension bridge, (Not lochness or Urquhart unless time)
St. Andrews: On way go through Cairngorms NP, stop in Pitlochry? Hope to play a around the next day in St. A
Edinburgh: On the way stop in Culcross. Castle, Royal Mile - all the highpoints
