Exploring Scotland by Car

A 12-day trip for 2 people.

This was 12-day trip to Scotland where we arranged a car, planned an itinerary, and booked accommodations along the way.

This couple in their 60s wanted a relaxed pace to revisit some of their favourite places – and discover new ones – so they chose 2-night stays at charming Bed & Breakfasts and quaint inns to give them more time for local flavour.

This trip plan included:

  • Hiking in Glen Coe & Glen Etive
  • Oban & Oban distillery
  • Ferry trip to the Inner Hebredian Isle of Mull, visiting the famous Abbey on Iona, seeing puffins on the Treshnish Isles, and Fingal’s Cave on the Isle of Staffa
  • Ullapool ferry to Isle of Lewis & Harris
  • Glen Finnian viaduct & Glen Finnan monument
  • Afternoon tea at Inverlochy castle
  • The Callanish Stones
  • Bosta Beach
  • Dornach Castle stay with Evening Whisky Tasting
  • Speyside Whisky Trail & Castles
  • Hike around Loch An Eilean in the Cairngorms National Park
  • Exploring Edinburgh’s Old Town
  • Hike to Arthur’s Seat
  • Return flights from Toronto

  • 12 Days

  • Accommodation at Inns with breakfast included or B&Bs; airport hotel stay before departure

  • Compact automatic car with full insurance

  • Scottish Heritage Pass for admission to castles & historic sites

  • $2700 CAD per person
