Need suggestions on how to tour highlands
I live in Ohio, but I'm obsessed with Scotland. I toured the cites and a few top sites with globus in 2014. My best friend may or may not travel with me (it depends on how much it will cost). I however am willing to spend $4000, plus airfare, to cover as much as my bucket list as possible. I need suggestions of 8-12 day tours between June 1- July 31 or October 28-November 31. I've mapped out the major areas mostly in the western highlands, Edinburgh, and the Herbadies (see screen shot). I've been looking at Brendan vacations, CIE, and even getting help from a AAA travel agent, but these tours wont allow me to see anything new. I looked into 2 different private tours, but they were $10,000 a person. How do I get to see as much as possible, in my budget, staying in a b&b or 3 star accommodations. I don't really need a guide, I just need a safe way to get around.
