The 2nd-3rd week of August my husband and I will pick up our rental car from the Edinburgh airport after 3 days in Edinburgh. We will leave in our car and drive to Inverness/ Colloden where we will stay 2 nights. Question:
- Can we reasonably visit both Stirling Castle and St. Andrews as part of a "drive day" on the same day we end up in Colloden? If so, in what order do we plot our route? Or...
- Do we visit Stirling or St. Andrews as a day trip on one of our days while we are in Edinburgh? Which is the easier day trip? Train? Bus?
- On our way back down from Inverness toward Glasgow ("drive day"), what would we want to see on our way? We will have 2 nights in Glasgow.
I am a history teacher and will also be exploring my family roots, Clan MacAulay while in Glasgow (Ardencaple, Helensburgh). Any tips/ insight/ places to eat/ not miss on my journey?
