East or West?

Hello! My husband and me, we’re going to spend some days in Scotland from 28 October to 1 November. We’ll arrive in Edinburgh from Milan at 3 p.m..

We’re not sure about our itinerary. We’d like to visit the Highlands and Isle of Skye: we love nature and spectacular landscapes but we know that the weather and the light won’t be top at this time of the year… Do you think it would be better to visit the east coast where there are more castles and towns and leaving the Highlands for summer?

If not, if we go west, is it better to visit Skye or the coast from Ullapool to Applecross? I don’t think we can do both: in our itinerary, we'll have a stop at the Macallan distillery: I’ve promised to my husband!

Thank you for your precious help

At that time of year we are more likely to have Atlantic storms so the East coast may be the better option and do the West coast in the summer!

Or the Moray Firth where there is a micro climate and the sun always shines!
