Here is yet another itinerary review post. :P We have 9 full days in May to see the country, and it’s our first time there so we want to pack in as much as possible. We love road trips and since we are both professional photographers, will spend much of our time looking at scenery through our lenses. Two more items of note: First, we will be celebrating my husband’s birthday during this trip, and second, my ancestry is Scottish so this is very exciting for me!
I know this itinerary is ambitious, but I hope it is doable. All hotels, rental car, and airfare are already booked. Thoughts?
Arrival (Saturday): Arrive Glasgow 7:30pm (stay 3 nights).
Day 1 (Sunday): Drive to Highland Games in Gourock (Inverclyde) - say a couple of hours, then drive back along southwest coast through Seamill and Ayr, down to Dumfries, back up to Glasgow. Dinner possibly at The Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery?
Day 2 (Monday – Husband’s birthday): Full day Castles, Lochs & Whiskey Tour from Glasgow (Inverness Tours & Activities). Dinner at Café Source Restaurant.
Day 4 (Wednesday): See Eilean Donan, drive back up through Skye to Dunvegan Castle, then on to Inverness (2 nights).
Day 10 (Tuesday): Depart from Glasgow.
Thanks for any suggestions or comments.
