My wife and I have a very short trip to the UK in July to attend a wedding in London. We were originally going to visit Edinburgh and make 2-3 day trips from London to see Oxford, Cambridge, and maybe Yorkshire, since we have seen London on a prior visit. We have decided to drop Edinburgh, and instead are thinking of flying directly to Inverness, making a day trip to Skye, and returning to London. Our thinking is that Skye and the Highlands may give us the true flavor of Scotland more than Edinburgh, in the limited time that we have.
Rick Steves mentions several tour operators in Inverness. Has anyone taken a day tour offered by Wow Scotland or Happy Tours or others? We'd like to make the most of our day trip.
