I’m putting the finishing touches on a 10 day golf trip to Scotland with another golfer which consists of two nights in Edinburgh when we arrive on May 7 and one on the 15th, the night before we fly home. Also, six nights in an apartment in St. Andrews. We are playing golf on the 11th and 12th and the 14th and 15th before driving back to Edinburgh. Since we are walking all four golf courses we are taking off the 13th to rest our legs and see some sites. A friend (not my travel partner) suggested that we might consider getting up early and driving into the Highlands. I looked in Rick’s guide book for places to see but, except for some beautiful pictures, I really couldn’t come up with a plan. First, has anyone out there ever tried to do this, and if so could you share your experience. If not, do you think this a worthwhile adventure? I’ve been to Edinburgh and St. Andrews, but not the Highlands, and my friend has never been to Europe. Thank you.
PS If you have commented on a previous post about my wife wanting to piggy back a two week trip to Europe on my golf trip, after putting it all together she decided it was way too complicated and wants to wait for another trip. I appreciate your advice, some of which actually caused her decision.
