WING IT OR NOT TO WING IT???
I have 60 days to finalize the 7 day trip. I have never been and we are driving it ourselves. Goal: great scenery for photo's, distilleries, amazing views, castles, etc
This is what I've got so far....any suggestions welcomed.
Day 1 - Arrive in Glasgow (unsure what to do exactly this day - we will be tired after flying all night).
Day 2 - We head to Oban....stopping off at Balloch Castle, Loch Lomond, Kilchurn Castle and Dunstaffnage Castle. Check out the Oban distillery. Possibly Inveraray Castle.
Day 3 - We head to Isle of Skye. To get to out hotel that evening we can drive 2 hours and 50 minutes (via ferry) or drive the longer route 3 hours 7 minutes to avoid the ferry. My question is what is the better route. For scenery? For pit stops? Good photo ops?
Day 4 - We head to Inverness. I know we want to do something with Loch Ness.
Day 5 - Head to Dundee (original plan was to stay in Perth) I changed it. Not much of driving distance coming from Inverness. What things do we pass? What is a must do between day 4 and 5.
Day 6 - We head to Edinburgh. Stirling first. We have day 6 and 7 between Edinburgh and Glasgow. What do you suggest?
Day 7 - Glasgow.
After that head to Dublin for U2 concert!
