    We will be looking to visit everything mentioned above, and we enjoy history and my husband is a major Shakespeare buff.  We will be in Scotland for 7 days, flying in and out of Inverness and plan on having a rental car.  Also, should we invest in a convertor for curling iron, laptops, etc?

    Thanks to all for your suggestions.  We are going to spend all our nights in castles and will be visiting Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle ruins, Clava Cairns, Culloden battlefield, Fort William, Stirling & Newark castles, Firth of Clyde & loch Lamond along with the isle of Arran and anything else we can squeeze in.

    If your husband is a Shakespeare buff, think about Dunfermline, the capital city of Scotland under King Malcolm III Canmore, who is the Malcolm who is mentioned in MacBeth.  The foundation of Canmore's Tower can still be seen in the Pittencrieff Park. The town itself is beautiful with many museums, parks and gardens and cafes and restaurants you can entertain yourself in. Also it is only a stones throw from places like Edinburgh, Stirling, Falkirk and Culross.
