Just looking for a bit of advice on an itinerary. We only have 5 days in Scotland and then we are off to Ireland. My wife and I will be planning this trip for late September. I was thinking about using Perth as a base and wondered if that was a good place to set up. I was then thinking about hiring a car and trying to enjoy the little time we have, but not rushed. That might mean not seeing an awful lot, but enjoying what we are able to see. Do you think it is possible from Perth to take day trips to say Sterling, St. Andrews, Glencoe/fort Williams, and then take the train into Edinburgh for the last 2 days? The we will head off from Edinburgh. Like I said this is my first time there, and really do not want to rush too much. If we can't see all that what would you recomend? I would def like to see the countryside and take photos as that is my hobby. Thanks for the help and suggestions guys. Always appreciatd.
