Phase 3 imminent - July trip possible?
My girlfriend and I would like to visit Scotland for the first time (before we both go back to work next month) and I wondered if anyone could nudge me toward some good areas to visit and stay in. We're keen on the Western coast with castles, abbeys and nature as our highlights, but are open to any other parts of the country also. We would like to avoid tour groups and just stay independent, and ideally get around either by car or moped rental, but will happily resort to walking and public transport if necessary.
I read in 'The Scotsman' that the Phase 3 Route might be opening as soon as 9th July, in which case could someone please clarify what this would entail, and whether any of the above would even be possible.
Thanking you for your help,
