Self drive road trip from Edinburgh to Loch Lomond
My husband & I are coming to the UK in September for a 20 day self drive trip beginning in Heathrow and driving up through York and then along to coast to Edinburgh. We are starting a road trip in Scotland on 23 October beginning in:
23 & 24 Edinburgh -
24 overnight in St Andrews 24
25 October drive to Inverness
26 Inverness to Loch Ness return to Inverness
27 Inverness to Isle of Skye return to Inverness
28 drive to Loch Lomond via Fort William overnight.
Obviously we will be stopping along the way to visit the various castles, Lochs, places of interest.
Then heading down to the Lakes district in England.
My question is should we be driving back to Inverness from Loch Ness or just continue on from there to Isle of Skye? We really want to see the Isle of Skye and take in as much of Scotland as we possibly can in the amount of time we have. Am I being too ambitious in this short amount of time? If so what needs to go? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
