5 Days in the Highlands...and to finish in Glasgow!
Hi, We are going to spend 5 days in the Highlands/Glasgow next month [Aug 23-28] and am looking for any advice on what not to miss and what to see. We have booked accommodation in 4 spots - Inverness, Kyle of Lochalsh [to visit Skye], Fort William and Glasgow - and will be hiring a car. I did an initial bit of research and thought these places would give us a good flavour of this part of Scotland. Plus there's not too much driving between the destinations. However, as the time is fast approaching I would like to formulate a "plan of action". Thing is the more sites and info you read the more options and things begin to multiply. I believe a holiday should be a mix of seeing things but also trying to soak up some of the local atmosphere. Nobody wants be stuck to a regimented dash through a country. I would really appreciate any thoughts or recommendations for the timescale and area in question.
