My wife and I have traveled to Scotland twice. Once from Aberdeen along the Dee to Braemar for a long weekend. The next was a week long trip to the Moray Coast staying near Buckie. We covered most things from Inverness to Banff and inland as far as Ballindalloch.
Her Aunt and Uncle who are in their 70s want to go to Scotland with us next year and have us play tour guides. Well, now we have to figure out where to go. We would prefer not to do everything we have already done but may have to see a distillery or two as the Uncle is a Scotch lover. We visited Glenfiddich and Macallan last time. The uncle used to play golf but I do not think he does any more.
We have not seen a Highland Games yet, just the field of white cups in Aboyne the day after. Looked like a few had a good time.
I should say that we eat more in the pubs than at restaurants.
Duration of trip will be no shorter than a week and possibly up to two weeks.
Where should go and what should we do as in "you haven't done this yet? are you nuts?"
