    • 3 nights in Skye VS 2 nights in Skye + 1 night in Inverness

      Isle of Skye Apr 11, 2014 at 1:48 PM

      My husband and I are arriving into Edinburgh on July 8th. We spend 2 nights there - and then rent a car and the plan is to drive to Skye on the 10th. We have 3 nights booked in Skye at the Rowan Cottage Tree House. We then have a flight out from Inverness to London on the 13th at 2PM.

      My question is do you think we should do 3 nights in Skye or should we spend the last night in Inverness since we have a flight out from there on the 13th afternoon.

      Also any suggestions on good routes from Edinburgh to Skye and any recommendations for what distilleries to visit perhaps on the way to Skye? My husband really enjoys Scotch where as I can be the designated driver.

      Thanks in advance for all your suggestions!

      I am planning my family's first trip to Scotland. We will be there for 8 days. I am wondering if I should include the Isle of Skye?

      We are going to Great Britain at the end of March '14 to visit our granddaughter who will be spending a semester in college at Grantham. We plan on several days in Scotland and plan on using the train from Grantham to Edinburgh (two night stay) to Kincraig to Inverness. We have booked a B & B in Drumnadrochit but we are wondering what is the best way to travel from the train station in Inverness to Drumnadrochit and back. Our granddaughter has a 5 day weekend and we will travel by train from Inverness all the way back to Grantham in one day.

    • 4 days in the northwest highlands, how long to spend in the isle of skye?

      Isle of Skye Mar 12, 2013 at 11:35 AM

      We are going to Fort William at the end of May. From there we plan to rent a car and want to see all the amazing views of the area. The Isle of Skye is high on our list but not sure how long to spend there and how to balance the rest of our stay. Is it worth driving all the way up to Durness and continue along the coast to the east and down south or is it best to stick to Skye? Any tips welcome
