My husband and I will be going to Scotland in late June/early July for seven nights. We are planning on renting a car and driving. Does the itinerary below look doable? We don't want to spend our entire time in a car, but we also want to see as much as possible in a short amount of time.
Day 1: arrive 7 am Edinburgh. We want to rent a car and drive and stay at Stirling or possibly Perth. Is there a better choice between the two? It should be noted that we will arrive in Edinburgh on a Sunday.
Day 2: At some point during the day, head towards the Inverness area.
Day 3: Inverness area
Day 4: Drive to Isle of Skye
Day 5: Isle of Skye area
Day 6: Edinburgh - return car
Day 7: Edinburgh
Day 8: Depart Edinburgh at 9am.
Is this driving itinerary possible or should we modify? Maybe we should spend less time in one area to make sure we have more time in another? Should we bypass the Isles all together? Maybe leave them for the next trip?
Thank you so much for your help.
