With a momentous month-long trip to USA planned for next year, Adam and I are planning for a cheaper road trip around the Scottish Highlands and Islands this summer.
Shamefully, despite Adam being Glaswegian, neither of us have travelled very far beyond the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh: we’ve explored around Loch Lomond, but beyond that, there is so much that we have yet to see.
I mean, what self-respecting Scot has never seen infamous hotspots such as Loch Ness or Ben Nevis, never mind the lesser known wonders such as the Fairy Pools or the Callanish Standing Stones!
Anyway, that’s all about to be rectified; here is our current itinerary :).
Sunday: Dumfries – Glen Coe
Monday: Glen Coe- Isle of Skye
Tuesday: Isle of Skye
Wednesday: Isle of Skye- Loch Ness
Including a trip to Urquhart castle
Thursday & Friday: Around the Cairngorms & Stonehaven
Enjoying the FUNicular (we collect these!) and Dunnottar Castle
Saturday: Cairngorms to Edinburgh
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday:
Spend time in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas for our yearly comedy-fix at the annual Fringe Festival.
Are we missing anything? (I know we’re not going particularly North, but we’re a bit limited dates-wise this trip as it’s sandwiched between Adam’s Dad’s wedding and a catch-up with friends in Edinburgh)
We’d appreciate any recommendations or tips!
