Might be my last year in the country so I've been keeping this trip as a little treat to ourselves. I'm travelling with another female and we want to see as much as possible in the week we drive up. The thing is, I want to see lots n lots of places in Scottish Higlands and we love to drive, stop take pictures, enjoy a walk and a nice local pub to meet some nice folks. And come back revived back to the grind of London. Always been amazed and intrigued by Scotland and its people so the scenery/ mountains and nature is a big part of this trip. Instead of looking at tons of books and researching I thought I'd ask as I'm driving myself mad with what to do and what to is out. If things go well, perhaps I will get a chance to see the rest of Scotland but for now, I have to pack a lot in the week.
So any suggestions and opinions will be most welcomed. Plus if you know of any b&b's we can just stay for a night would be great too.
Plan is: 24 May drive up-31st last night in the area driving back to London on 1st.
So far we are planning to see Durham on the drive up and stay the night then move to Pitlochry and then fort Augustus and then after that Plokton or Isle of Skye perhaps a day trip and we need one more place to stay and then head back to London. I always wanted to see Skye as a child so I'm hoping well take the ferry to it and spend the day and come back down on a ferry as far as possible (loch lomond? Or something beautiful) and perhaps stay the night there and then drive to London.
Would you have any suggestions? I'm not keen on staying in Glasgow tho' I haven't seen it but I would prefer more scenic routes, places and being able to meet locals and have a laugh. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
Much love and thanks!
