2 days from Glasgow to SKY-which journey?
I 've 2 days to go from Glasgow to Mallaig and then take the ferry to SKY.
at first, I had the idea to go and visit stirling castle then go to the Loch Lomond and spend the night in Arrochar. (day 1)
day 2- inveraray-oban and night at Glencoe.
Day 3, I go to Mallaig in the morning and take the ferry
the thing is, after reading so many posts, I'm not so sure of the journey i should take. It seems that the Glencoe valley is beautiful. So, if I understood well, if I want to see it I have to take A82.
Doing so, I don't go to Inveraray and Oban. (is it worth it?) So, from Stirling, I can go to the Trossachs and visit places around Callender and spend the night somewhere in the Trossach, Killin for instance (day 1).
Then, in day 2, I can drive to Glencoe but it will not take long since I wont spend time in Oban. We will arrive early then I don't know what we'll do since , with my 2 kids, we don't plan on hiking. The hotel is already reserved in Glencoe but I can Change that. Maybe we can go to Fort William and see what is to be seen, and spend the night there. This way, we could take a ferry earlier the following day and so, spend more time in SKY
My question is, is Oban worth a look or is it better to take a look at the Glencoe Valley. ? which journey will you take? By the Loch Lomond or By the Trossach?
My trip starts in 2 weeks and I haven't figure it out.
If you could give me advices, that will help. :-)
