Hello, we have 2 weeks driving around Scotland in mid to late March this year, all part of my husband revisiting his childhood... he says he must get to the top!
We want to drive on roads less travelled with lots of opportuntiy to admire scenery, historic places, old houses,towns and villages along the way. Any advice re our planned route below would be great.
The plan so far ... to have one night in Edinburgh (have been there before so not too worried about moving on quickly) and then head to Stirling for the next night (taking in Culross, Linlithgow, Bannockburn enroute).
Night 3 - We are thinking of staying at Pitlochry (travelling via Loch Tay (Callendar, Balquhidder & Killin) or would driving Perth, Dunkeld be more picturesque? Would salmond be going upstream in March or is it too early?)
Night 4 - Inverness , Culloden
Night 5 Dornoch
Night 6 Wick (having been to Dunnets Head, Thurso, John O Groats)
Night 7 For Augustus or maybe Inverness again, taking in Drumnadrochit enroute, Calendonian Canal)
Nights 8 & 9 on Skye - (having taking a peek at Plockton
Night 10 Fort William
Nights 11 &12 Oban
Nights 13 & 14 Glasgow (having travelled via Inveraray, Craecrae gardens)
We would love any advice ... is this feasible? Any chance it could be relaxing or just too much gadding about? If too much what should we leave out? Any must- do's we have left out.
Many thanks for your help
