My husband and I are planning a Scotland trip for this summer (2019). We would like to see mostly the western coast with castles, abbeys, and nature as our highlights. We know that we want to experience the West Highland Rail and the Jacobite Steam Train. We would like to visit Skye, the Firth of Forth, and the Falkirk Wheel. We would like a mix of self guided, self driving, and a tour day or two. Advice on who would be helpful for the details and itinerary would be perfect. We know that this part of our travel will be after 3 days in Edinburgh. We are thinking 10 - 14 days total for the trip. We tend to do too much when we travel and we are looking for assistance in helping us narrow our focus. Thank you for any assistance that you can provide.
