My family of four will be visiting Scotland in July for the first time. We will spend 2-3 nights in Edinburgh. We would like some advice on where to spend our other 6 nights. We were thinking about spending 3 nights in two different villages in Scotland. We have heard wonderful things about Comrie and Plockton.
We prefer to experience the real culture of small villages to 'touristy' over crowded regions. Although we understand that some tourist spots are worth the crowds.
If anyone could lead us to a charming village where we could bike or hike, see castles perhaps, and just enjoy the charm of the local environs, we would very much appreciate it.
