      Road Trip Around Scotland

      Scotland Apr 22, 2015 at 3:17 PM

      Hello,

      Currently I am planning a road trip throughout Scotland. I have planned my basic itinerary but I was hoping for some input to see if it is doable and/or if any adjustments should be made. My dates are from August 22 - September 12. So far I have the following planned:

      2 nights in Edinburgh for the festival (accommodations already booked)
      2 nights in Loch Lomond area
      3 nights in Oban
      3 nights on the Isle of Skye
      2 nights on the Isle of Harris and Lewis
      3 nights on the Orkney Islands
      2 nights in Inverness
      2 nights in Aviemore
      1 night in St. Andrews
      1 night in Edinburgh for an early morning flight

      I am planning to rent a car on the way out of Edinburgh on August 24. I will be by myself (therefore doing all the driving) so I'm wondering if this route is doable or too ambitious? Have I left out any highlights/must stops?

      Any recommendations on "must sees" along this route?

      Much thanks in advance! :)

    • One week in Aberfeldy - suggestions

      Aberfeldy Apr 11, 2015 at 5:56 AM

      Hello, We have 7 days in Aberfeldy, have a car, would appreciate suggestions on what to do and where to go. We are walkers (easy-moderate) not hikers,not interested in shopping, would like to discover more about the real Scotland - we live in Australia. Would it be possible to do day trips to one of the islands eg.Mull and maybe Falkirk Wheel. Loch Katrine looks accessible. Any suggested walks in any area up to 10-15kms would be appreciated. Have done some research but TOO MANY TOO CHOOSE FROM so suggestions would be great. Thanks

    • Jarlshof ruins

      by rasybanks Online Now May 16, 2011 at 7:41 PM

      We will be in Lerwick for one day with a cruise ship. We would like to visit the ruins but at the moment the tours are book.
      Is there a local tour company that we can contact to give us a tour of these ruins? And if so what is the timing and cost?
      Thanks

    • Arriving by Cruise ship beginning of September, 2011

      by clinda Online Now Apr 26, 2011 at 6:21 PM

      Hi, I am hoping that you will be able to help me plan our day in Lerwick. Is there enough to do in the town to spend the whole day? Are there van tours that a group of 3 could pick up in town? Is it a distance from the cruise pier to town? I have difficulty walking distances, so I would like to know. Any particular sights not to miss? What about shopping? I like to buy items that represent the culture and the country I am visiting, especially Christmas ornaments and decorations - any suggestions? What should we expect the weather to be like at the beginning of September? I am sure there are other questions I would like to ask, so I might log in at a later date. Thank-you for taking the time to answer my questions. LC
