Hello all! I've started planning (late, I might add) a 14-day trip to Scotland. I've reviewed quite a few itinerary posts and really getting a lot of insight from the experts here. Like others that have asked for feedback on itineraries, we are looking to stay at least 2-3 nights in any one location to allow for weather and rest. Besides, our party will be myself, my husband, and two grown boys, ages 21 and 19. So, I imagine we need to leave our agenda fairly flexible.
Our challenge is that we want it all - hiking and outdoor activities, beaches, traditional music, pubs, a dram or two of whisky, neolithic sites, history/culture, castles, and quaint villages.
While I am working out an itinerary, I wanted to ask about areas that I've seen very little posted about. I have an itinerary from Secret Scotland that I had hoped to modify a bit to reduce the number of stopovers. I found the Ullapool and Wester Ross areas intriguing and had considered a stopover in that area versus Inverness.
Any thoughts on that area of the country and if it is worth spending time there at the expense of others?
Thanks in advance!
