We are a group of old girlfriends - all 9 of us in our mid 60s planning to do the grand tour of the UK. We have 8 days in late June to do Scotland starting from Edinburg and ending in Newcastle on the way down back to London. Not much time but that's all we have so far.
Would love to stay outside the big cities i.e. Edinburg or Glasgow. We have cars and love driving so accommodation far afield would present no problem as long as it is not too far.
We love history and gardens, not interested in shopping or nightlife. Love to stay by the water - be it lochs or rivers or seaside.
Pls advise the route we should take, which towns or villages we should seek accommodation. Our budget is very flexible.
