Hi there... anyone interested in helping us plan a suggested general itinerary? My boyfriend and I are planning a 10 day trip to Scotland at the end of June or early July 2014. We love nature, outdoor physical activity and culture. Below is a short list of areas we plan to be... I'm not sure what is reasonable in that amount of time to do (how many days in each place?) and what is along the way that we should include. I'm hearing of off the beaten path areas that sound amazing and like our kind of travel/adventure, but not sure if time makes it all doable (such as Cape Wrath or one of the islands). I imagine we'll fly into Edinburgh and out of Inverness (or vice versa). Would probably rent a car for all or part for flexibility and freedom.
- Old town Edinburgh
- St. Andrews (ideally play but at least see the course)
- Hike Whiskey trail and will visit Speyside Cooperage (we'd prefer moderate to challenging hikes... 5 days is probably enough or day hikes mixed with other things works too). But we'd like to get some physical activity throughout the entire trip. At the minimum a morning run somewhere nice.
