      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

      Scotland in late August

      Scotland Apr 30, 2015 at 12:43 PM

      Just scheming right now but I think I'm going to try and go back to Scotland this summer. If it works out, Mr. Dabs will be doing a swim race in Loch Lomond in late August and from there I'd like to head north and the two places I've got on my list so far are Eilean Donan castle and the Isle of Skye. And my grandfather was born just outside of Glasgow so I may want to put that in there somewhere. I'm assuming we'd have to fly into Edinburgh, United flies straight into Edinburgh from Chicago for sure in the summer.

      So if we do a round trip from either one and hit those two spots, what other places should I be looking at? Last summer I visited a lot of the castles in and around Edinburgh (Stirling, Linlithgow, Craigmillar) and I did a 1 day bus trip that went to Inveraray, Loch Awe, Doune so no need to revisit any of them.

      Thanks :-)

      Nude Sunbathing in Stornoway

      by Arbuckle Online Now Jan 29, 2005 at 3:28 AM

      Hi, I live in Norway, I will be bringing a coach-party of gay men to Scotland in July, we will be visiting at Outer Hebrides. Can anyone tell us, is it okay to sunbathe nude in Stornoway? Here in Norway people aren't too bothered about such things: in my village people can sunbathe topless or nude in the churchyard. Is it okay to sunbathe nude in churchyards in Stornoway? Or do we go to the local nude beach?
