So my boyfriend and I have never been to Scotland, and only have 3 days to really enjoy it while we're there (February 21-24). Because of that we have really packed a lot into our trip.
Thursday 10am - arrive & pick up rental car. Drive to Eidenburgh. Spend day light hours in the city, then drive to A Taste of Speyside for 8pm dinner (passing through St. Andrews & Aberdeen along the way) and staying at the Craigellachie Hotel.
Friday - 10am tour at Balvenie, 2pm tour at Cardhu, then spend the afternoon / dinner in Loch Ness and spend the night in Isles of Skye.
Saturday - Spend the bulk of the day in Isles of Skye then drive back to Glasgow for the evening where we will stay and prepare for our flight home the next morning.
First, because we have never been there, is it possible to get to Isles of Skye at all times of the day via the bridge? Secondly, given our short amount of time, is it better to go directly from Eidenburgh to Speyside without passing through Aberdeen? I was unsure of which would be a more scenic route.
Any suggestions are welcome! I know we are trying to cram a lot in, but I do not know when we will have a chance to come back!
