We have to be in the UK in early March for a wedding, and were thinking as part of the trip of spending some time in Scotland (anything from a few days to a week as we're pretty flexible). My husband and I have both been before, and definitely want to do Edinburgh and St. Andrews, but aren't sure about a further itinerary, especially with a three year old in tow. I've always loved the highlands, and we both want to someday see the Orkneys, but I'm not sure March would be the best time for that. My husband will insist on some sort of whisky distillery visit, and I'd like to do at least some hiking/outdoor activities. We currently live in Canada so are used to inclement weather, but I'm wondering if there are areas of Scotland that would be better than others at that time of year. Ideally we'd love to find a short term holiday let and use that as a base (we do have a car over there). Any suggestions would be appreciated.
