I am going on a golf trip to St. Andrews in May 2020 and my wife is joining me after we are finished for another 10 days or so. We looked at the RS Best of Scotland tour, but neither of the departure dates before or after my golf trip work for us. We have also spent four nights in Edinburgh several years ago and there are only a few things we want to go back and see. I do like the tour itinerary and would like your thoughts about trying to follow it independently starting at St. Andrews and finishing back in Edinburgh. I have driven in Scotland between Edinburgh and St. Andrews and will again for the golf trip, but I don't know anything about the roads in the highlands between cities. I'd appreciate any suggestions, experiences or advice you'd like to share about the above, and in particular anything you did not like on the tour (or on your own) that perhaps I should consider omitting. I'm also going to post this on the Tour Travel Forum as well, but thought I might benefit here from anyone who may have done this route independently as well. We have done four trips to Europe but never on a tour, although on a solo trip last year I followed his Venice/Florence/Rome tour itinerary. Thank you.
