My husband and I will be in Scotland for just four days in early September. We fly into Edinburgh and plan to stay a day and a half, then will have one full free day before we take a final day to arrive in and explore Glasgow, where we fly out the next morning.
What to do with that day in between? Hubby likes castles and we both like scenery, so we want to see as much as possible without driving crazy amounts of miles (we will have just completed 8 days driving around Ireland). After reading all the great posts I'm thinking we can get an early start and drive out of Edinburgh to Fife, come back through Stirling (or vice versa?) and make our way to Glasgow. We can stay in either place overnight or go somewhere else close by if that's better - perhaps up to Glencoe. Am I missing anything huge or should I shift my plans entirely?
Also, I'm assuming we should rent a car...yes??
Would love feedback - thanks for your help!
