we are planning our first trip to Scotland and cant figure out how long to stay in 1 place --or where to use a place as home base. We want to see Edinburgh, the highlands, skye and Orkney. we are interested in history--medieval, roman, Viking pict,and Neolithic. and we love scenery. How can we arrange an itinerary that's best for us. we plan on using public transit in edinbugh but renting a car in the highlands on. We will have 3 weeks. are we best to go to Orkney-how long to stay? or just get a day tour to see the Orkney neothlic sights? I am 65 and my leg gives out occasionally so I'm not a fan of walking tours but can walk sites ourselves at a slower pace. I want to see the fairy glen and the fairy pools. and hopefully a fishing trip on one of the lakes. Sorry if I'm asking too much at once. I'm exicted to go Scotland--trying to narrow it.
