We are a kiwi couple in our late 20's and are looking at hiring a car, which we will do from London and spending 9 or 10 nights in Scotland. We will spend 4 nights in Edinburgh, and we are interested in visiting Loch Ness and Isle of Skye on our travels. Can anyone recommend an itinerary for us or suggest places to visit. We like beautiful scenery, coastline and castles. We will be on a tight budget and will be trying to stay at backpackers/campsites/B&B for most of the trip. We are looking at going in early October this year. Thanks very much.
