I am planning a trip from Northern Ireland (Belfast area) to visit family in Campeltown/Tarbert Scotland and also wanted to fit in Edinburgh as well. I thought taking the Larne/Troon ferry would be a great way to go, then take the train connection to Glasgow. From Glasgow, we could do a day trip to Edinburgh and the next day visit Campbeltown/Tarbert via a drive. Is the drive scenic and worth it or is taking the bus a better way to go? Any recommendations about places to stay in the Argyll area before heading back to Glasgow (from there we're flying back to the US)? Also, any advice on spending more time in Edinburgh vs. Glasgow? FIrst time visiting, advice much apprecaited!
