I will be coming to Scotland by way of Wales in May. I plan to have 6-7 days in Scotland and would like to have a base location, possibly north of Edinburgh. I will have a rental car and hear driving in Edenburgh is not a good idea. My thought was to have somewhere that we could take day trips out of so as not moving from one location to another.
I would like to see Edinburgh, Stirling, St. Andrews, Inverness and good scenery and small towns.
