I represent a group of med students. We are willing to visit scotland's malt whisky trail in July and we have some questions regarding it. First of all, after walking the great glen way from Fort William, we will be traveling from Inverness on foot or by public transport to the region of the whisky trail. We will only be able to stay there for 2 days and we'd like to see and experience the essence of scottish whisky. Would you be able to recommend us the best way to travel between the distilleries? Could you also suggest us which distilleries are a must-see, since we probably wont be able to visit them all?
We've also heard that in July the great glen way is occupied with small flies which are unbearable. Is it true?
Thanks for your advice :)
Hi , I'm going to be in England this summer for a summer camp and I was thinking about visiting Scotland but I'll only have a weekend to do this trip. I was planning to take a train from London to Edinburgh on Friday and come back on Sunday. But I'd also like to see Highlands as well, so is it possible for me to take another train to Inverness from Edinburgh after a day in Edinburgh ?
To sum up I'm planning :
-London-Edinburgh [ Thursday afternoon via train (It's 4.5 hours I guess ? ) ]
Friday : Edinburgh
- Edinburgh-Inverness [ Friday night via train ( 3.5 - 4 hours ? )
Saturday : Inverness ( Loch Ness? , Cawdor Castle? , Highland Wildlife Park?, Eilean Donan Castle ? )
- Inverness-London [ Sunday morning via train ]
So what do you think ? Is it possible ? Any suggestions ?
( by the way I'm 16 years old and going to get a BritRailYouthPass )
I need some serious help with 2 days of a 9 day trip. Here is what I have so far:
-Sunday 19th Flying into London - night in London
-Monday 20th Afternoon train to Edinburgh - night in Edinburgh
-Tuesday 21 Rabbies Bus Tour Isle of Skye -night in Portree
-Wednesday 22 Rabbies Still - night in Portree
-Thursday 23 Return to Edinburgh at night - 19:30 local time or so -NO PLANS OR HOTEL
-Friday 24 NO PLANS OR HOTEL
-Saturday 25 -NO DAY PLANS, booked hotel in Prestwick
-Sunday 26 -Flight to Dublin Early AM
What should I do between arriving in Edinburgh Thursday 5/23 night until arriving at B&B in Prestwick on Saturday 5/25 night?
Does anyone have a tip on what the best guide book would be to cover Gairloch and it's surrounding area? I've looked at loads on the internet (finding them in bookshops is harder) but they don't really give much information on what places are actually covered, so I'd like to get a really good one with helpful information. I have an AA guide on Scotland which is a good format (includes walks and drives) but really need one that is a bit more focused on the area itself.
