Me and my husband are planning a trip to Scotland this summer. We have booked 7 days in our calendar, addition to two days of travel (to n fro) from London. We will be visiting in 1st or 2nd week of July. I needed some suggestions/help from all the fellow travellers out here.
We will be arriving on a Saturday noon, taking rest day that in some hostel or B&B in Lochaber Area. Next day we are planning to hike Ben Navis and leave for Isle of Skye in post lunch. I hope its doable in half of the day. Next 5 days are all for Isle of Skye.
Now this is where I need a lot of help from you guys. This is our first trip to Isles, I have fallen in love with this place looking at the pictures.
We both are very much into hiking and walking. We would love to see Isle of Skye on foot where it is mangaeable, rest we will be driving around to see places. I have some places in mind that I picked up:
Loch nan Eilean
Old Man of Storr
I hope its not too much in 5 days. Please recommend which places are best visited on foot and which all places we could hike to. If you think I am being too optimistic with my list of places, please do recommend that too.
Which would be an ideal base camp for us so as to allow easy commute to these places without having to travel long distance for each one of them.
Also We are more inclined towards camping, so please suggest some of the idea camp location out of all the places I mentioned. I would look for campsite myself, but would love to get an idea which will the most scenic location.
What will be the most scenic route while coming from Ben Nevis to Isle of Skye? Will the Skye Bride fall on the way? Any other ferry or on road routes?
Please do let us know if you want to recommend must go places to us while we visit Isle of Skye.
Awaiting your suggestions. Apology if some of questions sound weird. Just too excited to plan this trip out successfully.
