Scotland holiday

Hi we are planning a holiday to Scotland June 2017. Basically working around 7 nights we have booked with friends from Laggan to Laggan to do boat on the lochs. So we are planning on spending 2 nights Edinburgh first before driving to Laggan. After Laggan boat holiday, planning to spend 3 nights on Isle of Skye. Then maybe catch ferry to Malibg and drive to Oban for 2-3 nights then onto to Glasgow for 2 nights. We have to be in Glasgow to fly to Dublin for an Ireland tour. Does this sound ok or where should i go after Isle of Skye (base ourselves somewhere and do day trips?)

    Hi Jopidge, I've added up the nights count you've put in your message and it totals 9 to 10 ... 

    To answer your question though, that does all sound OK, Oban after Skye would be fine for day tripping out of. 
    Bespoke tours.
    Whisky, Castles and Food a speciality.

    Hi @jopidge! 

    I think your holiday plans sound fab!  Oban is a great place to spend a few days and there’s certainly plenty to see and do whilst you are in the area.  Check out our destination guide to Oban for some more ideas!  From Oban, you can also take ferry a over onto the Isle of Mull, or explore the Tea Gardens on the Isle of Kererra. 

    On your journey from Oban to Glasgow, you could stop in by the town of Inveraray, which overlooks Loch Fyne and has a beautiful a castle and gardens. Then continuing along the A83 from Inveraray to Glasgow, the scenery along a stretch of road called the Rest and Be Thankful is spectacular.  You will then join the A82 at Tarbet, and you will then be travelling along the western shore of Loch Lomond which is beautiful. Call in to the village of Luss, a small conservation village with traditional stone cottages.  There is a short walk along the crystal clear Luss Water and the view from Luss Pier looking over the islands of Loch Lomond is just stunning.  Remember to call in to Balloch…the biggest village on Loch Lomond with attractions such as Loch Lomond Shores and Balloch Castle Country Park.  Top Tip:  During your visit remember to call into our VisitScotland iCentres for some free maps and information.  You can also get your ferry tickets to the islands and some iCentres sell discounted tickets to local attractions!
