I am trying to plan a trip for my sisters and mom and I to see both Scotland and Ireland. I was hoping a week for each would be enough time. Three of the four of us can take turns driving and we don't have anything in particular we want to see other than at least going to Forfar since my mother's family is from there and visiting Cork area since my dad's family was from there.
I would probably prefer driving, but I am not averse to flying or rail travel either. They are more interested in scenic drives, out of the way places rather than very touristy places.
My biggest concern is that my mom has bad knees and cannot do a lot of walking. Are there places in particular that are more difficult to see with limited mobility?
We would like to stay at bed and breakfast places and possibly a night at a castle.
I have read so many posts on here about itineraries, but I would love some ideas and input about your favorite places. Thanks
