A Newbie week in Scenic Scotland
Hi guys, I'll be driving through Britain late May, June with my wife (both 62 with a bit life in us) and have one week set aside for Scotland. If we aim to kick off in Glasgow (from the Lakes District) and finish in Edinburgh, would you offer some advice re the most scenic drives and routes? I've researched till my head hurts and can't seem to find an itinerary or patch together a single route. Plus, do we need to pre book accommodation? It'd be nice to keep it flexible as much as possible. We're from Australia so enjoy long drives but appreciate we don't know local conditions. Its the scenery and history we will enjoy most of all. Should we try to get to one of the Isles? Your thoughts greatly appreciated. Matt
