We will be in Scotland in July, spending 6 days in Edinburgh and 5 more in the Highlands. On the last full day of our trip(. (Friday), we will be driving back towards Edinburgh from Glenfinnan and our flight leaves from EDI around 10:30 on Saturday morning. It will be my husband and I traveling with our 3 kids ages 11, 8 and 4.
I am thinking it might be fun to spend a couple of hours on Friday afternoon/ evening exploring a town/ village/ interesting site then stay there and drive to the airport in the morning. Any thoughts on where might work well? We would be fine with a 30-45 minute drive to the airport. The drive will be around 7 am on a Saturday so (I assume) traffic will be light. Let me know if I am wrong about this!
Alternatively, we could make a farther away stop between Glenfinnan and Edinburgh then just drive the rest of the way in the evening and stay overnight near the airport.
Would love any thoughts/ ideas!
