Ideas for 8 days in October

My wife and I will be spending our 25th wedding anniversary on an 8-day holiday in Western Scotland. We're seeking routes and destinations. We fly to Glascow on Oct 10 and will likely hire a car. Want to minimize "windshield" time by finding 2-3 places to stay. We definately want to spend time on islands, but not Iona. Will driving to and from Skye take too much time?

No, driving to and from Skye is a good plan. If you use the Mallaig - Skye ferry one way and the Skye Bridge in the other direction, then you can make it a round trip, which will take you through some of Scotland's finest scenery.

I am so jealous! My husband and I toured Scotland last October for our 10th wedding anniversary. We had the most incredible vacation. As I posted in another forum, we purchased a complete driving plan from "Secret Scotland" prior to our trip. I think we paid about $30 for the plan. I think having the plan is what made our vacation so perfect. We chose our day trips from what they sent us and were never disappointed. We did not want to be aimlessly driving around (on the other side of the road for us:). So we simply followed their suggestions and had a fabulous trip!
