Skye is supposed to be lovely!  I don’t know it well but I spent a bit of time near Glen Coe which is just wow if you do decide to do a bit of exploring.

@littlebear2171: Scotland is gorgeous and I definitely want to go back again. My friend and I did a day tour of Skye and it was fun. We didn’t do any hiking but saw others and were told by our guide that it was a popular thing to do. If I ever go back I’d lvoe to hike! The scenery is stunning, but you sould make sure you go at a good season for it—it’s very rainy and cold (even in July!).

we also went to Edinburgh and Glasgow, both of which were beautiful and a lot of fun. I really want to see more of the north of Scotland and some of the Lochs as well. Definitely a worthwhile and beauitulf trip–especially if you’re into nature and hiking.

Just be aware that compared to large American cities the Scottish cities to me felt very small. I mean there is a lot to see and do, but not enough to fill 5 days of site seeing in one city.

Oooh and climbing Ben Nevis would be fun if you’re keen hikers.

@kala_way: You need to visit during the Edinburgh festival! Plenty to do then! 🙂

@littlebear2171:  I don’t really think Skye is a place to spend an entire week. i would plan a full day or two in Skye tops. If you’re on sky make sure you try to go to Faerie Glen http://tinyurl.com/6pbwhnq 

I highly reccomend visiting Edinburgh since you can see Edinburgh castle, Arthur’s Seat and i’d suggest doing the Whiskey Experience. You learn about whiskey, taste different whiskeys and get to see one of if not the largest private collection of whiskey bottles.  We also spent time in St. Andrews (where our wedding will actually be) and it’s a great place to walk around with so much history. You can see where will and Kate went to school if that is of interest.

Scotland has so much to do and you will fall in love instantly.  Keep an eye out for the adorable highland coos (cows) as they call them. They’re adorable cows with bangs. If you want to see a ton of them and get close you can drive to Plokton.

 

Good luck!! Be sure to take a wind breaker as it gets windy.
