Hi All, My husband and I have a honeymoon coming up, and plan to spend about a week in England and a week in Scotland. This is our rough itinerary, and I would love some input as to where we should go, things to do (or not do), places to stay, and how to get around.
Days 1-3: London (British Parliament, Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, trains to Winsor castle and Hamden Court)
Days 4-5: Rabbies 2-Day Tour of Cotswolds, Bath and Oxford (lodging included for 1 night; stay in London the next)
Day 7: Train from York to Edinburgh; Tour palace, castle, royal mile; Stay the night (suggestions?)
Day 8: Spend Day in Edinburgh; Stay the night
Days 9-11: Rabbies 3-day Isle of Skye Tour, staying in Portree for 2 nights (Glencoe, the Lochaber region around Fort William Eilean Donan Castle, Isle of Skye, Cuilin Mountains, 5 Sisters of Kintail, Loch Ness, Central Highlands, Pitlochry and then back to Edinburgh for the night). I do wish we could take one of the scenic trains (from Inverness to Kyle or from Mallaig to Glasgow), but I think a guided tour through this area might be easiest...
Day 12: Either drive or take the train to Glasgow - which is better? Stay the night (suggestions?)
Day 13: Spend Day in Glasgow - What should we do/see, and what is the best way to get around the city?
Day 14: Travel from Glasgow back to London (Train or Flight? Any scenic train trips back?)
