Starting in Edinburgh, and finishing nearby (heading into England), this 10 night trip was fantastic
We decided to focus on the East: Edinburgh, Loch Ness, Orkney, Cairngorms.
An amazing historic highlight, not to be missed.
Stayed for 3 nights. Excellent place to stay. Whilst there, here are the places we loved the most.
Must see - good place to start your Edinburgh adventure. Buy a Historic Scotland pass - further attractions using this marked (HS), great value.
Go for a wander. Visit the museum of childhood on way to Holyrood.
Go for the history, go because the queen still stays here.
Interesting insight into the New Town.
Pick up hire care and head north. As you head north to Loch Ness, visit here. Fantastic (HS).
Really amazing. Very atmospheric.
Stayed for 2 nights in 2 rooms at this lovely B&B.
Don't miss this atmospheric place (HS).
We liked getting on the loch, though you might try another cruise (wasn't bad, just could have been better).
Drive around the loch, visit Inverness and this battlefield. You won't forget it.
Head north, and stop for the falconry here. Tremendous.
Drive north for ferry, through where the highland clearances are stark. Watch the mad surfers at Thurso! Catch the Pentland Ferries trip to Orkney.
The weather might be challenging, but the sights are amazing.
Stay three nights at this lovely house, outside Kirkwall. Quiet, great value.
Fascinating neolithic mound, with Viking runes (HS).
It is amazing you can walk up to and around these (free).
Close to the standing stones. Imagine: like Stonehenge, but you can actually walk around (free).
Drop in here for lunch.
Neolithic village - there is nowhere in the world like it (HS).
Good lunch here too - awesome view.
Interesting history here.
Head back to mainland Scotland, and down to the Cairngorms.
2 nights here in this lovely, quiet B&B. Two rooms.
Good afternoon out. Polar bear and wolves!
You won't forget this - just great fun. Kids loved it.
On way back to Edinburgh, we stopped here. Kids loved it, and it was really interesting part of UK industrial history. Scenic too (HS).
We actually didn't end in Edinburgh, but continued on into England (Durham, Hadrians wall, York etc). But would recommend Melrose as a final Scottish destination (HS).
