7 day itinerary through Scotland

3 of us will be travelling from Edinburgh north and looking for an appropriate itinerary that would allow us to get alot in but also have room to explore, hike, etc. ANY advice on hotels, towns not to miss, etc. would be heartily appreciated. We plan on renting a car.

Thanks

Hi Boogz;

For questions about travelling to specific destinations, you can use the destination forums. The Edinburgh forum is here on TA;

tripadvisor.ca/ShowForum-g186525-i108-Edinbu…

I would suggest posting your query on that forum as well.

Best Regards

Loved Inverness, Sterling, Aviemore as well as the coast. Lots to see, definitely spend time on the various Scotland TA destination pages and forum to plan out your week.

Try to make it to the Hebrides - beautiful. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebrides

I really liked the Callanish stones. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Callanish_Stones

For accommodation, a unique experience is this. http://www.gearrannan.com/ We stayed in quite a few hostels - be sure to check this out as an alternative to hotels.

For budget hotels, check out Travelodge - can't beat their supersaver prices, and they just started a £12 room sale I believe.

I agree with the suggestion of Glasgow. Definitely worth a visit in my opinion.

A word of warning - bring waterproofs - coat, pants, boots - if you plan on hiking. You hopefully won't need them, but if it rains you absolutely will.

If your planning on hiking, how about doing the Ben Nevis walk.
