we are traveling to Scotland end of July into August.
we are trying to decide between going to the Hebrides or the Orkneys.
we would love some feedback and suggestions as to which trip we should take.
We like to hike, explore, good restaurants, B&B's, we do not like big crowds so aren't interested in festivals. We would like to see historical sights, good beaches and coastlines. We are late 30's, we like good pubs. We have rented a car. We really don't want to fall into tourist traps, we are hoping to explore off the beaten track find hidden gems. Any advice would be appreciated.
