I'm returning to Scotland this June for the third time with two friends for their first time. Both of my prior visits have mostly focused on Edinburgh with quick day trips to the Highlands. But this time I'm hoping to spend at least three days in the Highlands with my two friends.
We'll be leaving and returning to Edinburgh and will have a BritRail pass. I'd like to be back in Edinburgh by the evening of the third day. I was thinking perhaps spending Day 1 taking the train to Fort William, exploring a bit, then continue on to the Isle of Skye where'd we'd spend the night. Spend Day 2 exploring Skye by rental car and either stay there that evening. Day 3 take the bus tot he bridge then the train to Inverness, exploring along the way, before heading back to Edinburgh that evening. This might not even be reasonable so I'd appreciate your advice!
If someone with more experience could suggest a good three day Highlands highlights tour, it'd be appreciated! We all three enjoy whiskey and beautiful scenery if that helps. ;)
Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
