Hi everybody, I will be travelling with a few friends to Scotland during mid May. We will be travelling from London so our plan is to travel to Edinburgh via train in the morning and stay in Edinburgh for 1 night. For the next day, we are thinking of taking a train to Fort William and take the Jacobite Steam train to Mallaig where we take a ferry to Isle of Skye Armadale. However, we want to travel to Glendale because we prefers those scenic places (Fairy Pool, Neist Point etc) but we do not know how to travel from Armadale to Glendale. Also we also don't know on how to travel to Fairy Pool. We are not driving so we only can take the public transport. However, if there is really no public transport to these places, maybe we have to give Isle of Skye a miss and visit other places in Scotland? If so, which places should we replace Isle of Skye?
We will be staying for 2 nights in Isle of Skye so we plan to just explore those scenic places and take photos. After that, we will be heading back to either Glasgow or Edinburgh for a flight to Europe. We also hope there will be suggestions on where to visit in Isle of Skye as we are quite confused too!
On a side note, will it be better to follow the itinerary as mentioned above or as mentioned below?
Overnight train to Fort William from London and take the Jacobite Steam Train to Mallaig and then ferry to Isle of Skye for 2 nights and then train back to Edinburgh for 2 nights. Means total 4 Days in Scotland.
Thank you everyone for your suggestions! :))Edited: 15 February 2014, 11:48
