Road trip 3 days (Stirling - Skye - Loch Lomond)  (1 Answer)

Hi - I wanted to find out more on the best way to see Isle of Skye - tried to find out more information online and I understand there is a couple of areas - Lolchalsh, Broadford, Potree etc. Which area is best to stay for the best view and experience? I am planning to drive.

If I am staying at Isle of Lolchalsh, is it easy to drive across and how should I plan in such to maximise a full day in Skye? Can someone let me know / share links on hiking routes / sightseeing routes and suggest any activities to do in Skye?

What is the best scenic spots for photos?

Thank you

3 days tour self drive possible?  (11 Answers)

I am arriving by train to Edinburgh Waverly station and plan to do 1 day Edinburgh city sightseeing. I am exploring possibly of doing a 3 day self drive the next morning. Let me know if that is possible and how should I do it? I am thinking of driving up north from Edinburgh to see Stirling Castle, Eilean Donan Castle, sightseeing, then return rented car flying out from Inverness to CDG, Paris. Is there any other airport beside Inverness that fly to CDG?

Suggestions welcomed. If you think driving is not possible, please let me know the best alternate transport. I did explore 3 day tours with tour company - but this is not guaranteed departure and the tours will not run if minimum number of people required are not met.

Thank you! :)

Uig ferry/coach connection  (2 Answers)

Freaking out over nothing, but how does the coach connection with the ferry work? I'm travelling from Glasgow to Uig, and the bus gets in 10 minutes before the ferry is due to depart. Do we get time to get our tickets and do we get driven up to the ferry so we can board?

3 nights in Skye VS 2 nights in Skye + 1 night in Inverness  (1 Answer)

My husband and I are arriving into Edinburgh on July 8th. We spend 2 nights there - and then rent a car and the plan is to drive to Skye on the 10th. We have 3 nights booked in Skye at the Rowan Cottage Tree House. We then have a flight out from Inverness to London on the 13th at 2PM.

My question is do you think we should do 3 nights in Skye or should we spend the last night in Inverness since we have a flight out from there on the 13th afternoon.

Also any suggestions on good routes from Edinburgh to Skye and any recommendations for what distilleries to visit perhaps on the way to Skye? My husband really enjoys Scotch where as I can be the designated driver.

Thanks in advance for all your suggestions!

We are going to Fort William at the end of May. From there we plan to rent a car and want to see all the amazing views of the area. The Isle of Skye is high on our list but not sure how long to spend there and how to balance the rest of our stay. Is it worth driving all the way up to Durness and continue along the coast to the east and down south or is it best to stick to Skye? Any tips welcome
