So I'm pondering a slight change to my itinerary and would like some thoughts on this.
After arrival and spending the first few days in Glasgow, I had planned to pick up a rental car, drive to Arran (via ferry at Ardrossan) and stay in Brodick for 3 nights, then continue up to Tobermory on Mull. However, I was thinking about changing this.
The new plan would have me taking a train from Glasgow to Ardrossan, catching the ferry over on foot, then staying in Brodick for 3 nights and getting around via public transportation, which I understand is good on Arran. At the end, I would take the ferry back to Ardrossan, the train to Glasgow Central and pick up a rental car there and head up towards Tobermory.
Just wondered what you all thought. The driving time would remain relatively the same (plus a 2+ hour chunk of time for the return train to Glasgow). It would lower the number of car rental days from 17 to 14, which would save money. Plus it would give me a chance to get acquainted with the country before I have to deal with driving. Does it sound feasible?
