My husband, our 3 kids and myself will be in Scotland this summer. We have pretty definite ideas where and what we're planning to do. I've gone to no less then 4 travel agents, all who look at me and say, Think about it and come back and we'll book. Are they telling me our plans are bad? Or are travel agents just that unhelpful??
I'd appreciate any comments and suggestions that you all have.
Day One leave home
Day two, Fly in to London, One night in London, see the typical sites. Before everyone crashes! We know this is too short a time for London, but the focal point of the trip is Scotland.
D3 - Take the late afternoon train from London to Edinburgh. Will get in later afternoon, early evening I think.
D4 - Tour Edinburgh
D5 Rent a car and head toward Inverness, with stops on the way. Any suggestions here would be great.
D6 Inverness - Loch Ness and Culloden Battlefield
D7 - Isle of Skye. We've heard we can not take our rental car on the ferry so are unsure if we'll stay on the Isle or not. Is there another way on? What would be the best way to do this?
The Eileen Donnan Castle here...
D8 - Kind of open..not sure if we want to spend more in the Highlands here or what. Ideas??
D( Fort William, Glencoe, Ben Nevis?? Loch Lomand?? Ideas??
D 10 Edinburgh, Castle perhaps?
The last 3 nights would be staying in Edinburgh, unless someone has a better thought. We'd very much like to focus on the W. Coast and the Highland area. We would love to stay in a castle one night.
I realize this is long and appreciate any help at all!
Thanks so much!
