Hi, given that you do not have a car and have already sampled the Highlands I would suggest you base yourself around Glasgow and make use of the extensive rail network to do day trips as well as the City itself.

Examples being the Ayrshire Coast (Burns Country), Stirling (Braveheart Country) and Edinburgh.

All of these less than an hour by train from Glasgow with most trains running every hour or more frequently.

Check www.scotrail.co.uk for times and fares

Agree with the above.

Get the bus from Uig to Portree then coach to Glasgow.

It is a long journey 6 hours plus but you will see some lovely sights on the way.

Glasgow has much itself to keep you busy if you feel you have had enough travelling and if you want to pop over to Edinburgh then it is only 50 minutes by train. They run every 15 minutes during peak hours.
