We are planning our first trip to Scotland in late August. We are spending our first three nights in Edinburgh. We then plan to spend three days in the Highlands and our last two days in Glasgow. Currently the plan is to follow Rick's recommendations for the Highlands - spending one day making our way from Edinburgh to Oban, one day making our way from Oban to Inverness, and the final day making our way from Inverness to Glasgow.
In trying to figure out what we want to do each day I'm finding there are a lot of suggestions from Oban to Inverness. There seem to be several historical sites in Kilmartin Glen, a lot of sights in and around Glencoe, and then there is Loch Ness. This seems like a lot to see in one day. Is this possible? I don't want to spend too much time in the area right around Oban only to run out of time and have to skip Loch Ness. Maybe these stops don't take as much time as I imagine. What are your must see stops between these two towns?
Thanks for any input.
