Hello, I am bringing my parents to Scotland next May. We want to be more in the highlands to see more rural areas, castles, unique artist shops, quaint pubs etc. We want to experiene the real Scotland not so much the touristy area. So far I have planned to get a train to Glasgow, hire a car and stay near Loch Lomond. This is all preliminary. Any suggestions of places to go or stay with our preferences would be much appreciated. Thak you
