When to go????

Can I ask advice since you a few of you have been to Scotland ? :)) My friend and I will be leaving Edinburgh on 6-22-19 headed to Oban. We will be leaving Stirling on 6-30-19 back to Oban to do a Whale tour that afternoon. Now the question I need advice on. Would it be easier to visit Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies on the way the first time To Oban or wait until the second time? I also want to visit Finnich Glenn in there at some point. Any advice? And any advice on what NOT to miss seeing would be very welcome and appreciated if you would like to share! We will also be going toward Isle of Skye and Inverness on our trip.

Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

You should not try to combine a visit to the Falkirk Wheel with the same day that you are driving from Stirling to Oban with a need to arrive for an afternoon whale tour. I enjoyed the Falkirk Wheel and I think you could budget about 1.5 hours there.
