First trip to Scotland- Please help with Itinerary
I am from Canada and it is my first time on this board and first time visiting Scotland in mid-May. I have 6 days. Help me make it a memorable trip!
I am landing in Gatwick on Friday late at night. From there here is what I plan to do:
Saturday morning early train Gatwick to Edinburgh, visit Edinburgh, stay overnight
Sunday morning early leave Edinburgh by rented car to Inverness
Sunday afternoon arrive in Inverness, visit, stay overnight
Monday morning early leave for Inverness, drive to Skye via Lochness (visit Lochness on the way) and then visit Skye, stay overnight
Tuesday morning visit Skye and surroundings (is it worth a full day of visiting?)
Wednesday morning early go from Skye to Glencoe via Glenfinnan (visit Glenfinnan viaduct on the way), stay overnight in Glencoe
Thursday morning, visit Glencoe, leave at noon to drive to Edinburgh to catch the train back to Gatwick to go back home.
Any suggestions or advice you can give me is greatly appreciated. I like scenery, castles, mountains, history. I live cities but I prefer the countryside.
