Hello All – Appreciate your thoughts on this basic itinerary. We will be in Scotland for eight days this autumn; we will concentrate on the west coast after visiting Edinburgh. I’m eager to visit the market outside the castle on Saturday in Edinburgh, Sunday we will be off for a seven night tour (flying out of Glasgow the following Sunday). We would like to stay over in Oban, Skye, and Sterling (not in any order). Thinking of renting a car in Sterling for rural driving, but would also like to take the scenic rail to Mallaig. The goal is to stay at least 2 nights in each locale enabling us to get a better sense of the place and its people, as opposed to running from stop to stop to just quickly view many places.
Greatly appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks in advance!
