Hi! I`m planning a road trip in Scotland, I have never been there, I`m really excited to go but I need further advice!

We really would like to visit Loch ness and the Isle of Skye and we need to end our trip in Glasgow, we`ll fly from London to Inverness and then hire a car.

Arrival in Skye (Maybe hotel in Portree)

Day 4:

Day 5:

Night in Fort Williams

Day 6:
Visit to Glencoe Valley

    Sounds like a great road trip. 

    Do you have any particular plans once you get to Skye?

    Hi! I would recommend at least 2/3 days in Skye, to make the most of your time on the island - as you have done I'd break up the drive back to Glasgow by stopping off in different areas. Have a great trip!
