Anyone for Haggis?
Day One – Collect your Campervan or Motorhome in Edinburgh and head up to the Forth Road Bridge to Bannockburn and Stirling Castle. Just a short drive away from here is the William Wallace Memorial (He was the one who defeated an English army at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in September 1297). Travel & stay overnight in the Perth area for Scone Castle, which was the crowning place of Scottish kings. Macbeth, Robert the Bruce and Charles II were once crowned there.
Day Two – After breakfast head straight up to Inverness via the picturesque town of Pitlochory. When in Inverness try to find the Lochness monster in Lochness. With Loch Ness only being a short drive away from Inverness you’d be daft not to go 😉
Day Three – After breakfast try and visit the Culloden, which was where the last major battle in the UK took place. From Inverness head west to the Isle of Skye along Lochness before heading North to the Isle of Skye. Skye is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Scotland and was once voted the fourth best island in the world by National Geographic magazine. There are two ways to get there. The more direct round is from the Kyle of Lochalsh over a bridge via Eilean Donan ‘The most photographed’ Castle in Scotland. The second and more romantic takes a car ferry from Mellaig.
Days Four and Five – After a day or so roaming the Isle of Sky travel to Fort William. If you have time take a trip to the coastal town of Oban which is known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’ and the ‘Seafood Capital of Scotland’.
Day Six and Seven – The final 2 days can be spent getting back to Edinburgh. A Stop at Loch Lomand for a picnic or Arrochar for a drop of Scotland’s favourite tipple- Whiskey would be recommended. Then head South to the Border Region of Dumfries. Which leads us to the final day, heading West through the Scottish Border region stopping of in Moffat, Peebles and Galashiels to Edinburgh.
So there we go!! Get planning your Scotland trip today.
