Good morning, all, and Merry Christmas!
My wife and I will be travelling to Scotland for 2 1/2 weeks the later part of July of this year, ending with a conference in Glasgow starting Jul 25.
We'd like to spend our 8 or 9 free days touring the country north of a line between Edinburough and Glasgow. We generally avoid large city's preferring smaller places, farmers market, rural scenery, historic sites, etc. We are on the cuso of 60, not particularly fit (though a 2 or 3 mile hike is OK) but enjoy getting out and off the beaten track.
With that in mind, could you propose three places you think we would enjoy seeing? You can do more, or less, of course, but I don't want to burden anyone. If enough people send me their three favorite spots, I will have more than enough to fill my time, I'm sure. I'll track those on a map of Scotland and I'm pretty sure that will show me a great route to travel.
Forgot to mention, we'll be in a hire care - I have no problem with driving on the left.
Thanks so much, and happy travelling in 2011!
