highlands in mid October with a car ?
I'm planning a 7 day trip to the highlands in mid October.
an estimated route is : Edinburgh --> Glencoe --> Glenelg --> Skye --> Inverness --> Saint Andrews --> Edinbrough
My main concern is bad road conditions due to weather.
What are the expected road condition on this route at this time of year ? are snow tires needed ? is road flooding expected ?
What is the expected weather ? I don't mind some rain , but too much rain will be less favorable ?
Are there affordable traveling alternatives along this route or a similar route (like a combination of trains/buses/faeries)
Any other suggestions (route changes)
thanks in advance ,
