Hello. I am planning a 3 week trip to drive around Scotland starting end of May 2022. My trip right looks like:
1) Leave from Edinburgh
2) Drive towards Aberdeen
3) Drive towards Inverness
4) Drive towards Ullapool
5) Drive towards Oban
6) Drive towards Glasgow
7) Drive towards Dumfries
8) End at Cairnryan to take ferry to Ireland.
I am noticing lots of sights and things to do along my route. I really don't want to stay in the towns, but would prefer to base myself in small towns along my route. I can then branch out for hiking and sightseeing. We don't mind driving for day trips.
Any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Also any recommendations on local pubs would also be greatly appreciated.
