I have received so much help in shaping our family trip coming up in 10 days to Scotland. With the advice of many of you, we have decided to take the Snow Road and drive through the Cairngorms from Inverness to St. Andrews. I have read that there are a few charming towns on the way. My question is, if we leave by 8am (on Tuesday June 20th) and want to at least stop along the way for a coffee/pastry/snack and then again for lunch, how long can fairly expect this drive to take? I am paranoid after reading so much on here that the time will be so much longer than I think and wondering if we can plan anything in St Andrews that afternoon/evening.
My second question is which stop(s) would you make along this way?
Thanks so much again in advance!
