Dear fellow tripadvisors,
This june me and my girlfriend are going to Scotland for the first time. We will be going there for 10 days / 9 nights and would like some help with creating a decent, doable and enjoyable intinerary.
We will also be renting a car.
This is the information / plan we have so far.
16/06/2013 - Arrive at EDI airport (from BRU) at 15.45.
- rest of the day in EDI.
17/6/2013 - We will probably go to Grantown-on-Spey or possible to Aberdeen. I've chosen Grantown-on-Spey because i'm a huge fan of Macallan and want to visit the distillery. However given the time we have, we might be able to drive to Aberdeen first, and then continue through Grantown-on-Spey.
18/6/2013 - we will most likely go to inverness .
21/6/2013 & 22/6/2013 we will be staying in the Torridon in Loch Lomond for a special package.
In that region we will thus be able to freely drive around and look around.
In this period in between we would like to visit Glasgow (my gf likes art, and we're told Glasgow is the place to go then). However I can imagine Edinburg will satisfy those artsy needs aswell so I don't really know if doing both city's in this trip is worth the time.
25/6/2013 - Departure from EDI at 16.15 towards BRU
As you can see, I still have a few voids in there.
The rough plan is to do the following in those voids:
1) Climb / hike Ben Nevis (as a part of my 3 - peak challenge spread over a few years :) ).
2) Ride the jacobite - my girlfriend is a HP fan!
3) Visit Rosslyn chapel
Other then that we would like do some moderate hard hikes and visit a castle, priory, church here or there.
Any tips are welcome on how to fill in the void.
