The overnight trains are expensive, so particularly for the Edinburgh option do you realise that it's less than 5 hours city centre to city centre- yes it's an extra night in a hotel but is likely to be more comfortable and you will see some great country particularly from York northwards. You can leave London Kings Cross station at 8am and be in Edinburgh by1230?

Are you into the Royal Family? That determines whether or not you do the Royal Yacht Brittania? Bit confused by days 19/20? You say to explore Ft William and Stirling area, then you are making your way to Oban for Mull? I would suggest you look at the Map again because if you intend to include Stirling that is one helluva detour between Ft Willliam and Mull!!!! Can't you do Stirling on the outward bound portion? You pass it on the A/M9 between Edinburgh and Blair Atholl! Also are you...More
