We are beginning to map out our trip this year to Scotland in mid-September. This is our third trip, and our first actually driving -- which we're really excited about.
We have 6 days in Scotland this time around. We fly into Glasgow (we're spending a little time in southwest England first) and we are thinking of starting out in Oban and going out on the 3 Isles -- Mull, Iona, and Staffa. We know the Puffins will be gone by then, but wondering if that's still worth the trip.
Monday is getting to Oban, Tuesday to the isles, and then Wednesday into the highlands. We fly out of Glasgow the following Sunday and want to spend some time in the highlands as well, along with getting to the Scone Palace. The only isle we've been to so far is Skye, and only for a few hours.
So, what do people think? Is the three Isle tour worth that day without the puffins? Or are we better off heading further north, spending some time on Skye or another isle?
